Description Ian Romanick 2010-08-11 16:12:43 UTC
At each version of GLSL there are a number of words reserved for future use (see section 3.6 in the GLSL spec).  The lexer processes these and generates tokens for them.  Upon encountering these tokens, the parse will generate error messages that are not useful.  For example, using the keyword "half" for a function name in a GLSL 1.10 shader results in the diagnostic:

error: 0:3(1): error: empty declaration list

A better message would be:

error: 0:3(1): error: invalid use of reserved word `half'

    glsl2: Emit error from lexer when illegal reserved word is encountered
    Without this, the parser will generate obtuse, useless error
    diagnostics when reservered word that are not used by the grammar are
    encountered in a shader.
    Fixes bugzilla #29519.
