Don’t Use ISO/IEC 14977 Extended Backus-Naur Form (EBNF)
Sometimes people want to do something, find a standard, and do not realize the downsides of using that standard. I have an essay in that genre titled Don’t Use ISO/IEC 14977 Extended Backus-Naur Form (EBNF). The problem is that although there is a ISO/IEC 14977:1996 specification, in most cases you should not use it. If you have to write a specification for a programming language or complex data structure, please take a look at why I think that!
