The Heirloom Development Tools

The Heirloom Development Tools package provides yacc, lex, m4, make, and SCCS as portable derivatives of the utilities released by Sun as part of OpenSolaris. The OpenSolaris utilities were in turn derived from the original Unix versions, and are assumed be conforming implementations of the POSIX standard.

Software developed on original Unix systems has quite often used internals of yacc and lex. The tools in this package provide a convenient way to make such software compile on free Unix platforms such as Linux or BSD. In particular, they serve as a stable base for compiling other components of the Heirloom Project.

Online manual pages for cdc, comb, delta, get, help, lex, make, prs, prt, rmdel, sact, sccs, sccsdiff, sccsfile, unget, val, vc, what, and yacc are available.

For installation instructions, see the README.
