I'm working on a project where I need to modify Bison.

I'm having some trouble undertstanding some of the details of how the
look ahead for a given set is computed.

Is there anyone out there that can explain the reltionship between the
LA bit matrix, lookaheads vector, and the notion of a default

Specifically if the lookaheads[] entry for some state differ by 1 is
it true that only one bit will be set in the LA matrix that
corresponds to that set?

Thanks for any help.
