in reply to Block-structured language parsing using a Perl module?

The Damian's "Advanced Perl Parsing" (see http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~damian/Perl/DPW/AdvancedPerlParsing.pdf) gives a topic "Nearly Parsing Perl" which sounds like it might be a serious enough example. You don't say which ones you've tried.

    Thanks for the link. I've pulled the pdf and will give it a read over the next few days.

    Though I do so with a great deal of skeptisism. P::RD (used to?) commits every one of my cardinal sins:

    1. horrible API;
    2. lousy documentation;
    3. useless diagnostics;
    4. glacial performance;

    Maybe Regexp::Grammars does better, but on a cursory inspection, I do not hold out much hope :(


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

      I don't know a lot about it. I did have to deal with it once in a program which took commands in an sql-like syntax and we had it pre-compile the the grammar and save it instead of compiling it on each load, which did make a difference IIRC. It was a while ago.
