Hi, I'm currently using yacc..  But i've come across an error message that I can't seem to fix, and was wondering if any of you guys can help me on this...  Well, i have a ambiguious grammer, and to fix the shift reduce i do the following:

exp : exp '+' exp {$$ = $1 + $3}
      | exp '*' exp {$$ = $1 + $3}
...

and so on..  But i get this error:
$$ of 'exp' has no declared type
$1 of 'exp' has no declared type
$3 of 'exp' has no declared type

Am i doing something wrong?  I don't understand what they mean by the declared type.  Thanks guys~

yacc internally uses YYSTYPE for the stack items.
But it won't compile unless you have told the compiler
what kind of type YYSTYPE actually is.  Maybe do this:

#define YYSTYPE int

Take a look at this for more info:

or you have to define what type exp belongs too

if you think its an integer , adding the following lines should( hopefully :P) solve the prob


%{


%}

%union{
   int yyint;
}


%token <yyint> exp

%%
...... your grammar here

%%
