Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that converts a
grammar description for an LALR(1) context-free grammar into a C
program to parse that grammar.  Once you are proficient with Bison, you
may use it to develop a wide range of language parsers, from those used
in simple desk calculators to complex programming languages.
This package provides the liby.a file including functions needed by
yacc parsers.

bison (2:2.5.dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Bump epoch to downgrade unstable version from 2.6.2.dfsg-1 back to
2.5.dfsg-3.  Incompatibility in 2.6.2 introduces FTBFS in unstable,
and we are in a freeze, hence this temporary workaround.  This version
is identical to 1:2.5.dfsg-2.1 except this changelog file and the new
version number (Closes: #691928).
