Specifying Operator Precedence
Bison allows you to specify these choices with the operator
precedence declarations `%left' and `%right'. Each such declaration
contains a list of tokens, which are operators whose precedence and
associativity is being declared. The `%left' declaration makes all
those operators left-associative and the `%right' declaration makes
them right-associative. A third alternative is `%nonassoc', which
declares that it is a syntax error to find the same operator twice "in a
The relative precedence of different operators is controlled by the
order in which they are declared. The first `%left' or `%right'
declaration in the file declares the operators whose precedence is
lowest, the next such declaration declares the operators whose
precedence is a little higher, and so on.
