### Cs419 lec7 cfg

1. 1. WELCOME TO A JOURNEY TO CS419 Dr. Hussien Sharaf Computer Science Department dr.sharaf@from-masr.com
2. 2. Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf PART ONE 2
3. 3. PARSING   A parser gets a stream of tokens from the scanner, and determines if the syntax (structure) of the program is correct according to the (context-free) grammar of the source language. Then, it produces a data structure, called a parse tree or an abstract syntax tree, which describes the syntactic structure of the program. Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf Stream of tokens parser Parse/syntax tree 3
4. 4. CFG      A context-free grammar is a notation for defining context free languages. It is more powerful than finite automata or RE’s, but still cannot define all possible languages. Useful for nested structures, e.g., parentheses in programming languages. Basic idea is to use “variables” to stand for sets of strings. These variables are defined recursively, in terms of one another. Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 4
5. 5. CFG FORMAL DEFINITION C =(V, Σ, R, S)  V: is a finite set of variables.  Σ: symbols called terminals of the alphabet of the language being defined.  S V: a special start symbol.  R: is a finite set of production rules of the form A→ where A V,  (V Σ)  Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 5
6. 6. CFG -1      Define the language { anbn | n > 1}. Terminals = {a, b}. Variables = {S}. Start symbol = S. Productions =    S → ab S → aSb Summary S → ab  S → aSb Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 6
7. 7. DERIVATION    We derive strings in the language of a CFG by starting with the start symbol, and repeatedly replacing some variable A by the right side of one of its productions. Derivation example for “aabb” Using S→ aSb generates uncompleted string that still has a nonterminal S.  Then using S→ ab to replace the inner S  Generates  “aabb” S aSb aabb ……[Successful derivation of aabb] Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 7
8. 8. CFG -1 : BALANCED-PARENTHESES Prod1 S → (S) Prod2 S → ()  Derive the string ((())). S → (S) …..[by prod1] → ((S)) …..[by prod1] → ((())) …..[by prod2] Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 8
9. 9. CFG -2 : PALINDROME Describe palindrome of a’s and b’s using CFG  1] S → aSa 2] S → bSb  3] S → Λ  Derive “baab” from the above grammar.  S → bSb [by 2] → baSab [by 1] → ba ab [by 3]  Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 9
10. 10. CFG -3 : EVEN-PLAINDROME   i.e. {Λ, ab, abbaabba,… } S → aSa| bSb| Λ Derive abaaba S a S a b S b a S a Λ Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 10
11. 11. CFG – 4 Describe anything (a+b)* using CGF 1] S → Λ 2] S → Y 3] Y→ aY 4] Y → bY 5] Y →a 6] Y→ b  Derive “aab” from the above grammar.  S → aY [by 3] Y → aaY [by 3] Y → aab [by 6]  Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 11
12. 12. CFG – 5 1] S → Λ 2] S → aS 3] S→ bS Derive “aa” from the above grammar.  S → aS [by 2] → aaS [by 2] → aa [by 1]  Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 12
13. 13. Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf PART TWO 13
14. 14. Parsing      CFG grammar is about categorizing the statements of a language. Parsing using CFG means categorizing a certain statements into categories defined in the CFG. Parsing can be expressed using a special type of graph called Trees where no cycles exist. A parse tree is the graph representation of a derivation. Programmatically; Parse tree can be represented as a dynamic data structure using a single root node. Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 14
15. 15. Parse tree (1)A vertex with a label which is a Non-terminal symbol is a parse tree. (2) If A → y1 y2 … yn is a rule in R, then the tree A y 1 y 2 ... y n is a parse tree. Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 15
16. 16. Ambiguity A grammar can generate the same string in different ways.  Ambiguity occurs when a string has two or more leftmost derivations for the same CFG.  There are ways to eliminate ambiguity such as using Chomsky Normal Form (CNF) which does n’t use Λ.  Λ cause ambiguity.  Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 16
17. 17. Ex 1 Deduce CFG of addition and parse the following expression 2+3+5  1] S→S+S|N  2] N→1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|0 N1|N2|N3|N4|N5|N6|N7|N8|N9|N0  S S+N S S + + N N Can u make another parsing tree ? 5 N 3 2 Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 17
18. 18. Ex 2 Deduce CFG of a addition/multiplication and parse the following expression 2+3*5  1] S→S+S|S S|N *  2] N→1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|0|NN  S S*S S S + * N N Can u make another parsing tree ? 5 N 3 2 Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 18
19. 19. Ex 3 CFG without ambiguity  Deduce CFG of a addition/multiplication and parse the following expression 2*3+5 1] S→ Term|Term + S 2] Term → N|N * Term 3] N→1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|0 S S+N S S * + N N Can you make another parsing tree ? 5 N 3 2 Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 19
20. 20. Example 4 : AABB S A|AB A Λ| a | A b | A A B b|bc|Bc|bB Sample derivations: S AB AAB aAB aaB aabB aabb S AB AbB Aabb aabb A A B A b a B A b a Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf B A A a AAbb S S A Abb a b b 20
21. 21. Ex 5 S A B A|AB Λ|a|Ab|AA b|bc|Bc|bB S A S B A A A b B a a S b A a A B A A b a b A A A a A A b A b a Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 21
22. 22. REMOVING AMBIGUITY Eliminate “useless” variables. Eliminate Λ-productions: A Λ. Avoid left recursion by replacing it with right-recursion. But if a language is ambiguous, it can’t be totally removed. We just need to the parsing to continue without entering an infinite loop. Dr. Hussien M. Sharaf 22
