     The RL files contain code for defining relational grammars
     and using them in a bottom-up parser to recognise and/or parse
     expressions in Relational Languages.
  
     The approach is a simplification of that described in
     Wittenburg, Weitzman, and Talley (1991), Unification-Based
     Grammars and Tabular Parsing for Graphical Languages, Journal
     of Visual Languages and Computing 2:347-370.  This code is
     designed to support the definition and parsing of Relational
     Languages, which are characterised as sets of objects standing
     in user-defined relations.
  
     Correctness and completeness is independent of the order in
     which the input is given to the parser.  Data to be parsed
     can be in many forms as long as an interface is supported for
     queries and predicates for the relations used in grammar
     productions.
  
     To date, this software has been used to parse recursive
     pen-based input such as math expressions and flow charts; to
     check for data integrity and design conformance in
     databases; to automatically generate constraints in
     drag-and-drop style graphical interfaces; and to generate
     graphical displays by parsing relational data and generating
     output code.
