Thanks for the link plural.y! I was looking for a C file, not a YACC file.

The AST approach has advantages over tokenizing. The tokenizer returns just symbols but the AST has also context information. It makes it much easier to distinguish between unary - and binary -. Gettext supports substraction but doesn't allow negative numbers.

Python's gettext is not as strict as GNU gettext. For 3.4 I like to forbid oct and hex numbers, too.
