I realize most people may not be familiar with the byacc package, but
it can't hurt to ask. I would like to alter the behavior of byacc to
make the file pointer yyin use this "text" mode by default. I can
always reopen the pointer myself in the correct mode, but it would be
nice to know whether or not there is an option to already accomplish
this. For now, I will assume I have to reopen the pointer to take
advantage of the technique below.
