Hi Alex,

I though about that too and I was not sure about what to do. The reason
I didn't use it is because I don't export the value constructors of
Token type, that is why I created the access functions explicitly.

Right, it makes sense.

To be honest I'm not familiar with Control.Applicative at all.  I'll
read about it and see if I can figure how to do this.

A quick search pointed me to this:

Is there any other resources you would suggest me to read?

Thanks at lot,
