## How to identify whether a grammar is LL(1), LR(0) or SLR(1)?

How do you identify whether a grammar is LL(1), LR(0), or SLR(1)?

Can anyone please explain it using this example, or any other example?

X → Yz | a

Y → bZ | ε

Z → ε

Posted: Sep 14, 2015 Since we can build this parsing table with no conflicts, the grammar is LL(1). To check if a grammar is LR(0) or SLR(1), we begin by building up all of the LR(0) configurating sets for the grammar. In this case, assuming that X is your start symbol, we get the following: (1) X' -> .X X -> .Yz X -> .a Y -> .

If you have no FIRST/FIRST conflicts and no FIRST/FOLLOW conflicts, your grammar is LL(1).

An example of a FIRST/FIRST conflict:

S -> Xb | Yc X -> a Y -> a

By seeing only the first input symbol a, you cannot know whether to apply the production S -> Xb or S -> Yc, because a is in the FIRST set of both X and Y.

An example of a FIRST/FOLLOW conflict:

S -> AB A -> fe | epsilon B -> fg

By seeing only the first input symbol f, you cannot decide whether to apply the production A -> fe or A -> epsilon, because f is in both the FIRST set of A and the FOLLOW set of A (A can be parsed as epsilon and B as f).

Notice that if you have no epsilon-productions you cannot have a FIRST/FOLLOW conflict.

Posted: Mar 9, 2018 First off, a bit of pedantry. You cannot determine whether a language is LL(1) from inspecting a grammar for it, you can only make statements about the grammar itself. It is perfectly possible to write non-LL(1) grammars for languages for which an LL(1) grammar exists.

Simple answer:A grammar is said to be an LL(1),if the associated LL(1) parsing table has atmost one production in each table entry.

Take the simple grammar A -->Aa|b.[A is non-terminal & a,b are terminals] then find the First and follow sets A. First{A}={b}. Follow{A}={$,a}. Parsing table for Our grammar.Terminals as columns and Nonterminal S as a row element. a b $ -------------------------------------------- S | A-->a | | A-->Aa. | --------------------------------------------

As [S,b] contains two Productions there is a confusion as to which rule to choose.So it is not LL(1).

Some simple checks to see whether a grammar is LL(1) or not.
**Check 1**: The Grammar should not be left Recursive.
Example: E --> E+T. is not LL(1) because it is Left recursive.
**Check 2**: The Grammar should be Left Factored.

Left factoring is required when two or more grammar rule choices share a common prefix string. Example: S-->

A+int|A.

**Check 3**:The Grammar should not be ambiguous.

These are some simple checks.

**LL(1) Grammars,** By definition, if we don't get conflicts, the grammar is LL(1). both conflicts would be resolved correctly: in state 0 on lookahead a LALR(1) a grammar that is LL(1) but not LALR(1), which is the case but not easy to find an If you are not asked, you don't have to construct the LL(1) table to prove that it is an LL(1) grammar. For LL(1) You have to check by using First and Follow method. For LR(0) and SLR(1) you have to do augmented transition method, and then by making state transition diagram, you have to look where Shift-Reduce and Reduce Reduce conflicts are present and according to that you've to eliminate the parser.

**Is CLR(1) grammar and LR(1) grammar are same?,** Notice that top-down or predictive parsing techniques (such as LL(1) parsers) will produce a leftmost derivation. prefixes but also allows the determination of whether a grammar is LR(k).

With these two steps we can check if it LL(1) or not. Both of them have to be satisfied.

1.If we have the production:A->a1|a2|a3|a4|.....|an. Then,First(a(i)) intersection First(a(j)) must be phi(empty set)[a(i)-a subscript i.]

2.For every non terminal 'A',if First(A) contains epsilon Then First(A) intersection Follow(A) must be phi(empty set).

**How to Identify whether a Grammar is LL(1) Example 1,** Identify the conflicts in the grammar that make it not. LL(1) and Give an example of a grammar that is LL(1) but not LR(0), and explain why. (iii) The SLR(1) parsing table is as follows: (. ) $. P. (1) s3 r3 r3 s2. (2) accept. (3) s3 r3 r3 in state (3) we have a shift/reduce conflict, because on seeing an a we can't tell whether. The question asks how to show that it is LL(1) but not SLR(1). To prove that it is LL(1), I tried constructing its parsing table, but I am getting multiple productions in a cell, which is contradiction. Please tell how is this LL(1), and how to prove it?

**32. Checking of LL(1) Grammar with example,** Originally Answered: How do I check whether a grammar is LL(1)?. In order to Compilers: Whats the difference between LL(0) and LR(0) parsers. Is there such In the SLR method we were working with LR (0)) items. In CLR parsing we will be using LR (1) items. LR (k) item is defined to be an item using lookaheads of length k. So , the LR (1) item is comprised of two parts : the LR (0) item and the lookahead associated with the item. LR (1) parsers are more powerful parser.

**LR(1) grammars,** Here is an example of a grammar that is not LR(0): otherwise, if the lookahead is one of {$,+,)} , we reduce by E ::= T . The same trick can be used in Both LR(1) and LALR(1) check one lookahead token (they read one token ahead from the Problem 3: LL(1) and LR(0) i. Give an example of a grammar that is LL(1) but not LR(0), and explain why. One simple observation is that LR(0) grammars cannot contain productions, because ε they will force a shift/reduce conflict to occur. However, LL(1) grammars can handle this.
