OK - I agree that writing a parser using these new techniques would be valuable, and you did apparently do a lot of background research and this is all good for the community etc. My note was only a nitpick - don't take it too personally. I only wanted to say that at my work the standard HTML parser (or YAML parser or XML parser or .INI parser) is enough for all I ever needed. Writing a GLR parser or something else would be a great contribution - but so could be solving numerous other problems. My point really is that condescending people for getting things done using whatever available is low and that is what I see in the quoted sentence.

    Should we run to implement the derivative parsers described in the paper in Perl?

    "we" here means myself and the people I work with; which, of course, can include anyone who may be interested.
