Hello experts,
How I will translate a regular expression which contains a group of characters to cfg?
For example if I have this regular expression:
[wx]*ocl(qw|zx)*
how I will translate this?
And also how I will define a cfg which will  not let me define this regular expression using bracketing?

1.  Could you clarify whether this is your homework?
2.  I don't understand the second question.  Are you asking for a CFG that is not an RE?

Anyway, you can use "recursion" in a production to make something repeat:

wx ::= "w"|"x"
wxstar := "" | (wx wxstar)
 

If I guessed right about what your second question meant, having a language with the rule that you have the same number of a repeating character in two places is a typical example of a CFG that is not regular.  I'll let you work out the grammar for it until I find out about my first question.
