  <glossdef>
    <para>
      <emphasis>sid</emphasis> is an LL(1) parser generator
      with a long history (the original version dates back to
      the mid-sixties!). As well as the normal rule
      transformations it provides powerful techniques for
      call-outs in circumstances where a non-trivial
      look-ahead is required (essential for languages like C++),
      and for error recovery.
