I am looking for good documentation about error handling in yacc. Can
somebody recommend good books or even more preferable online info.

[Schreiner and Friedman's book, mentioned in the FAQ, has as good a
discussion as I've seen. Many old versions of yacc had a bug which
screwed up what error recovery there was, so the usual approach has
been to give up on a parse error. -John]
