back in my really young uni days I used to hand roll not so much parsers but tokenisers using a finite state machine (in C). used it for some advanced comp.sci projects
.
was about 20 lines of code (for everything), and a hand rolled a table.
tokenising a programming language such as C the table was maybe 30 rows.
handled all the language foibles (unary operators, ++, --, * as pointer vs multiplication, &...

this was when machines were pretty slow and system memory ws measured in kilobytes - this method blew away anything else in both speed and size.

kept a [hard]copy for years but eventually lost it quite some time ago.

After uni it was one of those really great tools only used once in a blue moon - (like that fancy german brand jigsaw in the tool box - bought for a project and it did the job really well but now rarely seen outside of it's box.)

OTOH I do find myself often analysing [programming] data flow/processing as sort-of finite state doodles on scrap paper.
