-- | This module defines incremental parsers. 
-- The exported 'Parser' type can provide partial parsing results from partial input, as long as the output is a
-- 'Monoid'. Construct a parser using the primitives and combinators, supply it with input using functions 'feed' and
-- 'feedEof', and extract the parsed output using 'results'.
-- Implementation is based on Brzozowski derivatives.
