I'm writing an interactive command interpreter in flex and bison and
am having a hard time finding the best way to handle errors. Does
anyone know of any helpful on-line resources that address this (other
than newsgroups, I mean...)? I've read the error handling chapter in
the O'Reilly "lex & yacc" book, but am still not getting it.

Thanks for your help,
Rich Cariens
[Yacc and its relatives don't give you much help. I usually parse one
line at a time and just give up if it hits an error, starting afresh
on the next line. -John]
