Parsing workshop

I saw this on lambda the ultimate and thought that someone might be
interested. http://planet-sl.org/parsing-at-sle2013/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=307&Itemid=892&lang=en

Someone from the clang community should go and convince them how much better hand written parsers are than parser generators :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Hi,

How "hand written" is clang's parser, actually? Is it written from
scratch without external dependencies, or does it use some parsing
library?

Greetings,
Daniel

Entirely from scratch. (tokenizer, lexer, parser - none of them use
any external dependency beyond basic IO routines)

It's as hand written as it gets. A quick look at the source will give
you an idea.
