vgrindefs - vgrind's language definition data base
vgrindefs contains all language definitions for vgrind(1). Capabilities in vgrindefs are of two types: Boolean capabilities which indicate that the language has some particular feature and string capabilities which give a regular expression or keyword list. Entries may continue onto multiple lines by giving a \ as the last character of a line. Lines starting with # are comments.
The following table names and describes each capability.
|ab||str||Regular expression for the start of an alternate form comment|
|ae||str||Regular expression for the end of an alternate form comment|
|bb||str||Regular expression for the start of a block|
|be||str||Regular expression for the end of a lexical block|
|cb||str||Regular expression for the start of a comment|
|ce||str||Regular expression for the end of a comment|
|id||str||String giving characters other than letters and digits that may legally occur in identifiers (default `_')|
|kw||str||A list of keywords separated by spaces|
|lb||str||Regular expression for the start of a character constant|
|le||str||Regular expression for the end of a character constant|
|oc||bool||Present means upper and lower case are equivalent|
|pb||str||Regular expression for start of a procedure|
|pl||bool||Procedure definitions are constrained to the lexical level matched by the `px' capability|
|px||str||A match for this regular expression indicates that procedure definitions may occur at the next lexical level. Useful for lisp-like languages in which procedure definitions occur as subexpressions of defuns.|
|sb||str||Regular expression for the start of a string|
|se||str||Regular expression for the end of a string|
|tc||str||Use the named entry as a continuation of this one|
|tl||bool||Present means procedures are only defined at the top lexical level|
vgrindefs uses regular expressions similar to those of ex(1) and lex(1). The characters `^', `$', `:', and `\' are reserved characters and must be `quoted' with a preceding \ if they are to be included as normal characters. The metasymbols and their meanings are:
Unlike other regular expressions in the system, these match words and not characters. Hence something like `(tramp|steamer)flies?' would match `tramp', `steamer', `trampflies', or `steamerflies'. Contrary to some forms of regular expressions, vgrindef alternation binds very tightly. Grouping parentheses are likely to be necessary in expressions involving alternation.
The keyword list is just a list of keywords in the language separated by spaces. If the `oc' boolean is specified, indicating that upper and lower case are equivalent, then all the keywords should be specified in lower case.
Example 1 A sample program.
The following entry, which describes the C language, is typical of a language entry.
C|c|the C programming language:\
:kw=asm auto break case char continue default do double else enum\
extern float for fortran goto if int long register return short\
sizeof static struct switch typedef union unsigned void while #define\
#else #endif #if #ifdef #ifndef #include #undef # define endif\
ifdef ifndef include undef defined:
Note that the first field is just the language name (and any variants of it). Thus the C language could be specified to vgrind(1) as `c' or `C'.
