Generala PSA about parser generators Pin

they do not make writing good parsing code simple.

they make writing good parsing code possible.

a hand written parser is still the easiest route for simple things.

but if you need things like the ability to continue when you find errors, a parser generator makes that less terrifying.

parsing data out of a tree, and parsing it linearly out of text using recursive descent is almost the same process. the only significant difference architecturally is where validation happens.
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.
