yes, Parsec is amazing. I use it in my e-Learning/testing system.
It uses Parsec to read (student) input from a text entry area in a CGI
Parsec shows the benefits of embedding a DSL into Haskell:
it gives you full combinatorial power:
in types (e.g. lists of parser) and functions (e.g. from parser to parser),
and all that with full safety.
