Good!

Small nit: qr{#.*\n?$}m can be written simply as qr{#.*\n?}

Small problem: 3 + 4 6 5 7 is considered valid by your parser. You need to check to make sure all tokens were absorbed or return an EOF token and check if that's the next token. The latter method would remove the need for "no warnings 'uninitialized';".

A big difference between your parser and PRD is that yours doesn't allow backtracking. With PRD, you can do "ruleA: ruleB | ruleC" without worrying if ruleB and ruleC can start with the same token. With yours, you'd need to factor out the common leading token ("ruleA: token ( ruleB | ruleC )"). But that's probably not a bad thing, since you should do that in PRD anyway for performance reasons. On the plus side, I think that gives PRD an "infinite" lookahead.

I think you could improve performance by generating a single regexp from @token_def (/\G(?>$ws)(?>$tok1(?{...}|$tok2(?{...}|...)/g).

Also, it would be better if the lexer was an iterator instead of doing all the lexing up front. That would decrease the memory footprint.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
