1. Explain with one example how LEX program perform lexical analysis for the following PASCAL patterns: identifier, comments, numerical constants, key words, arithmetic operation.


2. (a) Eliminate ambiguity if any from the following grammar for boolean expressions.

bexpr ! bexpr or bterm|bterm

bterm ! bterm and bfactor|bfactor

bfactor ! nst factor|(bexpr)|true|false.

where or, and, not (, ), true, false are terminals in the grammar.

i. A two dimensional array of integers (i.e. an array of arrays) whose rows

are indexed from 0 to 9 and whose columns are indexed from -10 to 10.

ii. Functions whose domains are functions from integers to pointers to integers and whose ranges are records consisting of an integer and a character.

(b) What is type system. Discuss static and dynamic checking of types.
