Report for week 8:
This week I worked on the parser. I removed the hack "swapping lists" we had used earlier. Now the grammar uses values from the bison stack. However, I was making the list rule return the SELECT_LEX :: item_list. This was fixed after the intermediate review.
I changed the grammar for INSERT...RETURNING and REPLACE...RETURNING, added test and result files for REPLACE...RETURNING and modified the comments of one test file.
I also worked on the intermediate review. Now the parser code doesn't rely on SELECT_LEX :: item_list. In REPLACE...RETURNING a list was declared inside the scope of "if" and using it outside the scope was illegal. So I moved it to the scope outside of if and made the grammar return: &list if select_lex::item_list is not empty else NULL.
My github repo is up to date with latest changes.
