The inchworm package

[ Tags: library, mit, parsing ] [ Propose Tags ]

Parser combinator framework specialized to lexical analysis. Tokens can be specified via simple fold functions, and we include baked in source location handling. If you want to parse expressions instead of tokens then try try the parsec or attoparsec packages, which have more general purpose combinators. Comes with matchers for standard lexemes like integers, comments, and Haskell style strings with escape handling. No dependencies other than the Haskell base library.
