+
+This directory contains data needed by Bison.
+
+* Skeletons
+Bison skeletons: the general shapes of the different parser kinds,
+that are specialized for specific grammars by the bison program.
+
+Currently, the supported skeletons are:
+
+- yacc.c
+ It used to be named bison.simple: it corresponds to C Yacc
+ compatible LALR(1) parsers.
+
+- lalr1.cc
+ Produces a C++ parser class.
+
+- lalr1.java
+ Produces a Java parser class.
+
+- glr.c
+ A Generalized LR C parser based on Bison's LALR(1) tables.
+
+- glr.cc
+ A Generalized LR C++ parser. Actually a C++ wrapper around glr.c.
+
+These skeletons are the only ones supported by the Bison team.
+Because the interface between skeletons and the bison program is not
+finished, *we are not bound to it*. In particular, Bison is not
+mature enough for us to consider that "foreign skeletons" are
+supported.
+
+* m4sugar
+This directory contains M4sugar, sort of an extended library for M4,
+which is used by Bison to instantiate the skeletons.
+
+* xslt
+This directory contains XSLT programs that transform Bison's XML output
+into various formats.
+
+- bison.xsl
+ A library of routines used by the other XSLT programs.
+
+- xml2dot.xsl
+ Conversion into GraphViz's dot format.
+
+- xml2text.xsl
+ Conversion into text.
+
+- xml2xhtml.xsl
+ Conversion into XHTML.
