Oh it is. This is what math and computer science doctorate holders with a masochistic streak do to unwind.

It's part of a LALR(1) parser table generation algorithm.

The whole thing is abusive. I feel like I'm gaslighting my CPU whenever I run it, because the damn thing doesn't make any sense and shouldn't work, but it does - expertly.

It is literally the most convoluted, ridiculous and monstrous thing I have ever implemented aside from pure hacks.
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.
