parsec1: Portable monadic parser combinators

[ bsd3, library, parsing ] [ Propose Tags ]

Parsec is designed from scratch as an industrial-strength parser library. It is simple, safe, well documented (on the package homepage), has extensive libraries and good error messages, and is also fast.

This package is the core haskell98 part of the parsec2 package, intended to preserve its simplicity and portability.

Note, that the module names overlap with those of parsec from the Haskell Platform, therefore I do not recommend to unconditionally use parsec1 (or parsec2 and parsec3) as dependency instead of "parsec "parsec 2", or just "parsec". In order to ensure the use of these limited and portable parsec1 functions, you may want to hide the official parsec package for your own developments.

This version only differs from the pervious one by a changed description.
