This is a version of the Get monad for incremental parsing. The parser is
written as if a single, huge, strict ByteString was to be parsed. It
produces results as it parses by calling yield.
However, if the parser runs out of data, rather than failing the caller sees
a Partial result, which includes the list of yielded values so far and a
continuation. By calling the continuation with more data, the parser
continues, none the wiser.
Take the following example
testParse = do
a <- getWord16be
b <- getWord16be
return $ a + b
test = runGet testParse $ B.pack [1,0,0]
Here testParse needs to read 4 bytes in order to complete, so test is
a Partial, which includes the continuation function, so which you can pass
more data until it completes
The lookahead functions have been removed from this parser because of their
incompatibility with the incremental monad at the moment.
|The Get type
|The result of a partial parse
|Failed String||the parse failed with the given error message
|Finished ByteString a||the parse finished and produced the given list of
results doing so. Any unparsed data is returned.
|Partial (ByteString -> Result a)||the parse ran out of data before finishing, but produced
the given list of results before doing so. To continue the
parse pass more data to the given continuation
|Start a parser and return the first Result.
|Skip ahead n bytes. Fails if fewer than n bytes are available.
|Get the total number of bytes read to this point.
|Get the number of remaining unparsed bytes.
Useful for checking whether all input has been consumed.
|Test whether all input has been consumed,
i.e. there are no remaining unparsed bytes.
|This is the choice operator. If the first option fails, the second is
tried. The failure of the first option must happen within this function
otherwise rollback is not attempted.
|Yield a partial and get more data
|Parsing particular types
|An efficient get method for strict ByteStrings. Fails if fewer
than n bytes are left in the input.
|Host-endian, unaligned reads
