I think I misread you at first so let me try this again.

I don't want to parse any strings. I created a tool that allows others to generate parsers to parse strings.


As to why you would want to - most of the internet runs on text based protocols. XML and JSON are text based, as are most internet data exchange formats.

Also there are things like programming languages. Say you want to parse one, or create your own. This helps with that, or making a query engine, making a SQL DB of your own, or parse SQL scripts whatever.

There are plenty of reasons to use a parser.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
