When I Press the Parse button after loading the text and grammar I get a dialog box with the following message.Can any one tell me why is it happening? The grammar is very large and I can not insert it here
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

well, debug into it and see what's happening. Most likely smth wrong with your grammar, but.. parser shouldn't crash on bad grammars, so likely some sleeping bug in Irony

Thanks for your response I have put the entire grammar above please help me to find out what is going wrong.

Mar 30, 2013 at 10:30 PM
I have seen that if I remove


from unTypedValueExp the being crashed is stopped.
  unTypedValueExp.Rule = booleanValueCollection
Mar 31, 2013 at 4:31 PM
please share full grammar as one text file - too much trouble to merge all these pieces
use ge.tt - one way to do it easily
Mar 31, 2013 at 4:59 PM

I have uploaded the grammar file SLAang

With regards
Mar 31, 2013 at 5:33 PM
immediately hit this:

parameterList.Rule = MakeStarRule(parameterList,comma,valueExp)|ifThenElseExp;

this is abs wrong thing to do - MakeStarRule result should NOT be messed up with anything on assignment
Find all places like these and fix
Mar 31, 2013 at 5:42 PM
Thank you for quick response

I have done
parameterList.Rule = MakeStarRule(parameterList,comma,expression);

but no change.

With regards
Mar 31, 2013 at 5:56 PM
you have another case here:
  argumentList.Rule = MakePlusRule(argumentList, comma, variableDiclaration) | Empty;
just change it to MakeStarRule
About the grammar - too many external dependencies, it's not runnable for me. Please refactor into a single compilable file/class. In general, it is a good practice to start with straight grammar-only stuff, make sure it works, and then add AST/execution stuff - but in such a way that it can be easily pushed-out, and have back grammar-only file
Mar 31, 2013 at 7:59 PM


Thank you for your advice.

I changed according to your advice but no change .

I uploaded the grammar file and the source file to be parsed both are open able by notepad. The link is Grammar and source

With regards
Mar 31, 2013 at 8:18 PM

I have an observation . The non terminal fullType and instanceMemberAccess is as follows

fullType -> Identifier :: fullType
fullType -> Identifier

instanceMemberAccess -> instanceMemberAccess . Identifier
instanceMemberAccess -> Identifier

but in parser state S498 and S522
fullType -> Identifier · [.]
instanceMemberAccess -> Identifier · [. ( -> > < >= <= <> = / div * + - and or xor implies )]
My question is why is the lookahead [.] for fullType.

With regards
Mar 31, 2013 at 10:26 PM
here's my findings:
  1. Has valueExp and ValueExp - is it intentional?!
  2. Need to register div, implies as op:
    RegisterOperators(12, "div", "implies");
  3. Add PreferShift in variableDeclaration:
    variableDiclaration.Rule = identifier + PreferShiftHere() + colon + type;
then grammar has no conflicts. It fails to parse your large file, smth to do with "::" double-colon separated lists, work on this
I did NOT encounter any Irony parser crashes as you reported at the beginning of this thread. Do you still have them? It can be connected to these Make-list fixes..
Apr 1, 2013 at 3:13 AM
answering your previous question, about [.] lookahead. Lookaheads are symbols that might appear AFTER the expression, so they mostly come from other Rules that use the non-terminal, not from the rule of NT itself. So for fullType, the dot comes from some other rule(s) that use fulltype - find them, analyze, and you'll probably find it.
Apr 1, 2013 at 4:13 PM


Thank you very much for spending your valuable time for me. I apologies for my unintentional mistake.For removing TypedNonterminal I ran a replace operation which replaced the tyed from typedValueEx.I have register

RegisterOperators(6, "*", "/", "div");
RegisterOperators(15, "implies")

and changed variableDiclaration according to your advice.

Please give me a guidance on working on "::" double-colon.

With regards
Apr 2, 2013 at 5:35 AM
Well, not sure when I can get to this. Look at grammar rules, are missing anything around this :: symbol? It might be also the consequence of all these PreferShiftHere() and ReduceThis() hints you sprinkled everywhere. These hints effectively hide the conflict, telling the parser to use one alternative, always. And the error case you see might be in fact suppressed alternative.
Apr 18, 2013 at 10:32 PM


Thank you very much for your advice and by that I can remove the grammar errors but the "Fatal error in code colorizer.Colorizing has been disabled" comes again.
Please help me to find-out what mistake I have done here.I have removed 2 Make List rule by recursion and they work well.

I have uploaded DebugLog.xml which records the exception,stacktrace and tokens.I also have uploaded the grammar file and the test file at Files.

The summary of the exception is _shiftAction.NewState is null at Irony.Parsing.PrecedenceBasedParserAction.ToString().
The concern is why it is null for a specific case and how to make it not null from grammar.

Thank you very much again for reading my mail by spending your valuable time.

Ok, finally got to it. First, there were a few compile errors in grammar - missing non-terminal declarations (typedValueExp, unTypedValueExp), added these. Then reproduced the exception that disables the colorizer- it appears a bug: Precedence hint tried to fix the conflict in places where it is unfixable. I fixed the bug (added some validation code) and pushed sources - get latest, not zip but Sources from Mercurial.
The added code in fix brings 2 extra conflicts in grammar. They appear to come from the problematic rules that you mention - for instanceName and memberName. The problem here is that all these names are 'identical' for parser; they are introduced in formal grammar description to clarity (of explanation) but they bring conflict to LALR parser. Remove memberName, instanceName non-terminals from grammar and replace all occurrences in rules with 'identifier'. Find all other rules that similarly introduce just alias for another term, like memberName - this brings conflict. Fix all these rules.
And without without fixing these conflicts, parsing of sample fails. Another thing - do not register 'dot' as operator. Don't do things just to make conflicts go away - fix them for real!
Apr 22, 2013 at 11:34 PM


Thank you very much for fixing the error .Would you like to advice me on how can I clarify the grammar because after parsing when I process the parse tree or abstract syntax tree it hep me to do by traversing .

Thank you very much again for reading my mail by spending your valuable time and fixing the error quickly .

Apr 24, 2013 at 8:43 PM
here's fixed version:
Apr 24, 2013 at 8:46 PM
Edited Apr 24, 2013 at 8:59 PM
Now some comments
  1. The biggest problem is compound identifier lists - identifiers or function calls connected with dots: 'foo.Bar(x).prop' More problems come from other similar lists with delimiters "::" and "->" instead of dot. This is a kinda known problem (same happens in c#), attempt to define exact definitions of each list separately brings a lot of conflicts. So the solution is to define one generic list that covers all variations, let it parse, and then verify after parsing that the parsed list is valid for the place in the source. I defined such list as chainedSequenceExt - it is a sequence of identifiers or function calls, optionally starting with "::", delimited by "::", "." or "->", and ending with array spec (like [number]). Here is the definition:
      var sequenceDelimiter = new NonTerminal("sequenceDelimiter"); //dot, ::,  ->
      var chainedSequence = new NonTerminal("chainedSequence");
      var chainedSequenceExt = new NonTerminal("chainedSequenceExt"); 
      var sequenceMember = new NonTerminal("sequenceMember");
      var arrayDim = new NonTerminal("arrayDim");
      var arraySpecOpt = new NonTerminal("arraySpecOpt");

      sequenceMember.Rule = identifier | functionCall;
      sequenceDelimiter.Rule = dot | scopeIn | propertyIs; // . :: ->
      chainedSequence.Rule = MakePlusRule(chainedSequence, sequenceDelimiter, sequenceMember); 
      arrayDim.Rule = "*" | identifier | number | number + comma + number | number + comma + "*";
      arraySpecOpt.Rule = Empty | "[" + arrayDim + "]";
      // Note: defining scopeInOpt (with rule: Empty|scopeIn) - does not work. 
      chainedSequenceExt.Rule = scopeIn + chainedSequence + arraySpecOpt | chainedSequence + arraySpecOpt;
Use it in all places instead of objectType, customType, etc. I did not remove these, just reassigned them (like 'var customType = chainedSequenceExt;') - cleanup all these. There are many terms and nonTerminals now declared but not used anymore - clean this up.
And remember - you need to add after-parse verification of the chainedSequenceExt lists.

Note that in most places (like in expression argument), a single identifier is in fact a primitive case of chainedSequenceExt; so if you have already included chainedSequenceExt as an alternative of some rule, do not include identifier - it will bring conflict, because parser does not know which to use to interpret a single identifier.
  1. Your other trouble comes from the attempt to define concrete function names in grammar (like 'collect', 'insertAt'), and to define rules for using them explicitly. This messes up things completely. Do not do this, they are just function calls, so let them be parsed as this. Recognize them as special, built-in methods when analysing the parse tree. I removed/disabled all these special function definitions
    After this all conflicts are gone. The grammar now 'defines' a broader language, so it must be supplemented with after grammar checks - do it.
  2. Had to bring dot as operator back. It appears you allow dot to be applied to expressions, like:
    (t - startDate.inMs()).round()

    so added dot to binaryOperator and set to highest prec value
  3. Now have a parse error, unexpected ";" symbol here, right after 'Schedule'
  schedule->iterate(s : Schedule ; 
                    next : Schedule = schedule->any(true) |
                    if next.nextStartDate(t) = -1   
I did not find ";" symbol defined anywhere in grammar, so this is something missing or not implemented yet.

In my thesis I will acknowledge you.Actually you removed the iterateExp that's why these lines are not parsed.I have add the code to functionCallArgs but stile it gives parser error.Invalid character ';' but in immediate previous grammar it was parse able.Please help me here.From this grammar it seems to me that after parsing a lot of work has to do. To avoid the work I explicitly define the expressions .

I uploaded the grammar at SLAng grammar

Thank you very much again for reading my mail by spending your valuable time and working on it.

With regards

Man, it's time to take over the thing, rollup your sleeves and start pushing it. I've fixed all the conflicts (the most serious ones), so now you can move in small increments. Just start modifying this parameter definition when it is a 'lambda' to bring back the old code I removed - as far as I understand this is the problem now
Try it, read something about LALR parsing and about conflicts, try it again. Let me know if you're stuck

Thank you very much for your effort but the way you advice need so many work at comiletime to determine the actual thing because of its generality
and it is possible to make it a little more specific.I did it but when I try to refactor emofAttributeDiclaration,functionSignatureBody and ArrayType so
many conflict come.Please help me here.My grammar file and the test file is here By the way do you have the original grammar
file on which you do work to fix conflict?

Looking at your grammar, and at OCL spec (http://www.omg.org/spec/OCL/ISO/19507/PDF)
One conflict is
Reduce-reduce conflict. State S418, lookaheads: ). Selected reduce on first production in conflict set.

The conflict is coming from these 2 productions in state S418

functionCall -> Identifier ( ·parameterList )
collect -> valueExp . Identifier ( ·argumentList )

(The actual conflict is for empty lists inside parenthesis, parser does not know how to treat it - as empty parameterList or argumentList)
Now, looking at the language spec, section 7.7.2, subsection shorthand for collect - can't quite match it... shouldn't it be parameterList instead of argumentList?
ArgumentList consists of var declarations like 'var + : + type' , and I don't find anything like this in the spec - but paramList is there.
When I change to parameterList in the grammar, the conflict goes away

another thing: bagLiteral has empty name in grammar code

Thank you very much for your effort and thats are very helpful.I get another shift-reduce conflicts with the

attributeModifir.Rule = ToTerm("component") | Empty;

please help me here.I have uploaded the grammar code here.
