ecl-maxpc 0.0.0-1.e5e58d0 Library for writing parsers and lexers based on combinatory parsing

Max’s Parser Combinators is a simple and pragmatic library for writing parsers and lexers based on combinatory parsing. MaxPC is capable of parsing deterministic, context-free languages, provides powerful tools for parse tree transformation and error handling, and can operate on sequences and streams. It supports unlimited backtracking, but does not implement Packrat Parsing. Instead, MaxPC achieves good performance through its optimized primitives, and explicit separation of matching and capturing input. In practice, MaxPC parsers perform better on typical computer languages—when compared to Packrat parsers—at the expense of not producing linear-time parsers.
