  1. Hi,

    I'm working on a C compiler, and I've got a quick question about the way types
    are defined.

    The ANSI standard shows types as being defined right-recursively, instead of
    left-recursive (as shown in yacc grammar). why was that chosen, instead of the
    left-recursive grammar?

    I'm not paranoid. They really *are* out to get me!
