erm.. yeah sorry 'bout that. Seems I'm to hasty. Thanks for the help.
Unit Production = nonterminal -> one nonterminal
now, without wanting to sound like an idiot..seeing as though its not a unit production (its got 2 non terminals), do we just leave it as it is? if yes, then we only have A --> B to worry about... but this seems to easy to be true. It does however seem counter productive to modify it into something containing unit productions just to remove them again.
You really shouldn't apologise for asking questions here. That's the whole point isn't it? Without decent questions what would anyone learn here? I just find that sometimes a question makes a better answer than a statement. I wasn't trying to complain or something like that. ...
For what it's worth I had some idea of what the answer might be because I've made the same mistake.
No, no, you sound like you're thinking, which nutters tend not to really do.
Hmm... Yes, I think you'd just leave it. If the question pertinently says "Get rid of the Unit Productions" then stick to what's asked, eh?
Of course the safest would be to review the two pages or so that cover this. Something says there might be some hidden problems in there, but I look and look and can't find them, so maybe I'm just being paranoid.
