    • Full support for ambiguous grammars

  • LALR(1) parser
    • Fast and light, competitive with PLY

    • Can generate a stand-alone parser

  • CYK parser, for highly ambiguous grammars

  • EBNF grammar

  • Unicode fully supported

  • Python 2 & 3 compatible

  • Automatic line & column tracking
