A Parser Generator environment w/mxTextTools back-end

Project description

Parser Generator for mxTextTools

SimpleParse is a BSD-licensed Python package providing a simple parser generator for use with the mxTextTools text-tagging engine. SimpleParse allows you to generate tagging tables for use with the text-tagging engine directly from your EBNF grammar.

Unlike most parser generators, SimpleParse generates single-pass parsers (there is no distinct tokenization stage), an approach taken from the predecessor project (mcf.pars) which attempted to create “autonomously parsing regex objects”. The resulting parsers are not as generalized as those created by, for instance, the Earley algorithm, but they do tend to be useful for the parsing of computer file formats and the like (as distinct from natural language and similar “hard” parsing problems).
