[Now with 100% more correct darcs get URLs.]
I'm currently getting Paolo Martini's Google Summer of Code project, an
updated version of Parsec, into a releasable state, and I will be
maintaining it for at least a while.
Paolo's major additions are:
* The Parser monad has been generalized into a Parser monad
* The parsers have been generalized to work over a stream of any
type, in particular, with bytestrings.
I have made a few minor additions as well:
* There is Haddock documentation for almost all functions
* The Parser monad now has Applicative/Alternative instances
Currently, I am looking for people to give it a go reporting any bugs in
the library or documentation, troubles building it, or changes/features
they would like. I'm also interested in performance information.
Most old Parsec code should be relatively easy but not trivial to port.
There is a darcs repository on code.haskell.org. If nothing comes up,
I'll put a package on Hackage in about a week or so.
To get the code:
darcs get http://code.haskell.org/parsec3
To build it, the standard cabal commands should work:
Alternatively, you can use the cabal-install application:
The documentation can be generated also via the normal cabal routine, or
The Text.Parsec modules should be preferred to the
