To follow up my own post, I'm working through chapter 10 of "Real World Haskell" 
right now, and then I'll look at chapter 14 (Monads). I think this is a better 
way of creating parsers. Maybe I'll look at Parsec eventually too, although I 
want to do a lot of stuff myself for the learning exprience.
