You wouldn't see it there. You'd see it in its ability to interoperate with other parsers, delegating parts of the parse to them and with the ability in Parsley to allow one to take over this entire procedure and parse themselves in code <--- this is where the table approach falls down. You cannot expect a human being to manually work with a compiled FSM table!

I should add, I've written several table driven parser generators. This one isn't. I can do things with it I can't with the others, like the above.
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.
