Transcript

  • 1. Hacking parse.y Tatsuhiro UJIHISA
  • 2. Me • Ruby experience: 4 years • Rails application • Data mining tool • Learning English here: 5 mths • Looking for a job!
  • 3. Me • Presentations in Japan • Kansai Ruby Workshop • RubyKaigi2008, 2009
  • 4. This is my first English presentation.
  • 5. Hacking parse.y Fixing ruby parser to understand ruby • Introducing new syntax • {:key :-) "value"} • 'symbol • ++i • def A#b(c)
  • 6. MRI Inside • MRI (Matz Ruby Implementation) • $ ruby -v ruby 1.9.2dev (2009-08-05 trunk 24397) [i386-darwin9.7.0] • Written in C • array.c, vm.c, gc.c, etc...
  • 7. ruby 1.8 vs 1.9 • ~1.8 • Parser: parse.y • Evaluator: eval.c • 1.9~ • Parser: parse.y • Evaluator:YARV (vm*.c)
  • 8. Matz said • Ugly: eval.c and parse.y RubyConf2006 • Now the original evaluator was all replaced with YARV
  • 9. MRI Parser • MRI uses yacc (parser generator for C) • parse.y-o y.tab.c parse.y bison -d sed -f ./tool/ytab.sed -e "/^#/s!y.tab.c! parse.c!" y.tab.c > parse.c.new ...
  • 10. parse.y • One of the darkest side • $ wc -l *{c,h,y} | sort -n ... 9261 io.c 10350 parse.y 16352 parse.c # (automatically generated) 183370 total
  • 11. (Broad) Parser • Lexer (yylex) • Bytes → Symbols • Parser (yyparse) • Symbols → Syntax Tree
  • 12. Tokens in Lexer %token <id> tOP_ASGN /* +=, -= et %token tUPLUS /* unary+ */ %token tASSOC /* => */ %token tUMINUS /* unary- */ %token tLPAREN /* ( */ %token tPOW /* ** */ %token tLPAREN_ARG /* ( */ %token tCMP /* <=> */ %token tRPAREN /* ) */ %token tEQ /* == */ %token tLBRACK /* [ */ %token tEQQ /* === */ %token tLBRACE /* { */ %token tNEQ /* != */ %token tLBRACE_ARG /* { */ %token tGEQ /* >= */ %token tSTAR /* * */ %token tLEQ /* <= */ %token tAMPER /* & */ %token tANDOP tOROP /* && and || */ %token tLAMBDA /* -> */ %token tMATCH tNMATCH/* =~ and !~ */ %token tSYMBEG tSTRING_BEG tXSTRING_ %token tDOT2 tDOT3 /* .. and ... */ tWORDS_BEG tQWORDS_BEG %token tAREF tASET /* [] and []= */ %token tSTRING_DBEG tSTRING_DVAR tST %token tLSHFT tRSHFT /* << and >> */ %token tCOLON2 /* :: */ %token tCOLON3 /* :: at EXPR_BEG */
  • 13. (detour) n MRI: parse.y (10350 lines) n JRuby: src/org/jruby/parser/{DefaultRubyParser.y, Ruby19Parser.y} (1886, 2076 lines) n Rubinius: lib/ruby_parser.y (1795 lines)
  • 14. Case 1: :-) • Hash literal {:key => 'value'} {:key :-) 'value'} • :-) is just an alias of =>
  • 15. Mastering “Colon”
  • 16. Colons in Ruby • A::B, ::C • :symbol, :"sy-m-bol" •a ? b : c • {a: b} • when 1: something (in 1.8)
  • 17. static int parser_yylex(struct parser_params *parser) { ... switch (c = nextc()) { ... case '#': /* it's a comment */ ... case ':': c = nextc(); if (c == ':') { if (IS_BEG() ||... ... } ... (about 1300 lines)
  • 18. How does parser deal with colon? • :: → tCOLON2 or tCOLON3 • tCOLON2 Net::URI • tCOLON3 ::Kernel
  • 19. lex_state enum lex_state_e { EXPR_BEG, /* ignore newline, +/- is a sign. */ EXPR_END, /* newline significant, +/- is an operator. * EXPR_ENDARG, /* ditto, and unbound braces. */ EXPR_ARG, /* newline significant, +/- is an operator. * EXPR_CMDARG, /* newline significant, +/- is an operator. * EXPR_MID, /* newline significant, +/- is an operator. * EXPR_FNAME, /* ignore newline, no reserved words. */ EXPR_DOT, /* right after `.' or `::', no reserved words EXPR_CLASS, /* immediate after `class', no here document. EXPR_VALUE /* alike EXPR_BEG but label is disallowed. */ };
  • 20. case ':': c = nextc(); if (c == ':') { if (IS_BEG() || lex_state == EXPR_CLASS || (IS_ARG() && space_seen)) { lex_state = EXPR_BEG; return tCOLON3; } lex_state = EXPR_DOT; return tCOLON2; }
  • 21. ... if (lex_state == EXPR_END || lex_state == EXPR_ENDARG || (c != -1 && ISSPACE(c))) { pushback(c); lex_state = EXPR_BEG; return ':'; } switch (c) { case ''': lex_strterm = NEW_STRTERM(str_ssym, c, 0); break; case '"': lex_strterm = NEW_STRTERM(str_dsym, c, 0); break; default: pushback(c); break; } lex_state = EXPR_FNAME; return tSYMBEG;
  • 22. How does parser deal with colon? (summary) • :: → tCOLON2 or tCOLON2 • EXPR_END or →: (else) • otherwise → tSYMBEG • :' → str_ssym • :" → str_dsym
  • 23. So, • :-) → tASSOC • :: → tCOLON2 or tCOLON2 • EXPR_END or →: (else) • otherwise → tSYMBEG • :' → str_ssym • :" → str_dsym
  • 24. :-)
  • 25. Case 2: Lisp Like Symbol • Symbol Literal :vancouver 'vancouver • Ad-hoc p :a, :b p 'a, 'b
  • 26. Single Quote (in parser_yylex) ... case ''': lex_strterm = NEW_STRTERM(str_squote, ''', 0); return tSTRING_BEG; ...
  • 27. Single Quote (in parser_yylex) ... case ''': if (??? condition ???) { lex_state = EXPR_FNAME; return tSYMBEG; } lex_strterm = NEW_STRTERM(str_squote, ''', 0); return tSTRING_BEG; ...
  • 28. (loop (lambda (p 'good)))
  • 29. Case3: Pre Incremental Operator • ++i • i = i.succ (NOT i = i + 1)
  • 30. Lexer @@ -685,6 +685,7 @@ static void token_info_pop(struct parser_params*, const char *token); %type <val> program reswords then do dot_or_colon %*/ %token tUPLUS /* unary+ */ +%token tINCR /* ++var */ %token tUMINUS /* unary- */ %token tPOW /* ** */ %token tCMP /* <=> */ (Actually there are more trivial fixes)
  • 31. regenerate id.h • id.h is automatically generated by parse.y in make • $ rm id.h $ make
