By the end of the day I should have a rudimentary implementation of GLoRy, my GLR parser.

GLR is the most powerful parsing algorithm known. It allows you to express your grammar however you want with never any conflicts (all "conflicts" make the GLR fork its stack and try each conflicting rule)

It can process highly ambiguous grammars, including natural language!

The tables are only LALR(1) sized, and how fast it is is inversely proportional to how many times it has been forked. This is all very very good, as it leads to linear time O(n) parsing when there are no ambiguities/forks

Also this is the only GLR implementation i've seen capable of streaming. The rest force you to load the entire document into memory at once.

The upshot of that is you could feed it an entire Bible and not worry about memory.

If there is a parser generator to end all parser generators its this.

It only has one real disadvantage and that's that it's more difficult to use depending on how you're using it. Since it can return multiple parse trees for a single parse the code to use it has to be able to handle that.

Anyway, GLoRy is peak parsing. If you can't parse it with GLoRy chances are it can't be parsed. =)

So cool!
