The Parser datatype.
When applied, these parsers do not return explicit failure.
An exception is
raised instead. This allows partial results to be returned
before a full parse is complete.
One of the key ways to ensure that your parser is properly lazy,
is to parse the initial portion of text returning a function, then
apply combinator to build the final value.
Parser datatype is a fairly generic parsing monad with error
reporting. It can be used for arbitrary token types, not just
String input. (If you require a running state, use module PolyStateLazy
Apply a parser to an input token sequence. The parser cannot return an error value explicitly, so errors raise an exception. Thus, results can be partial (lazily constructed, but containing undefined).
'manyFinally e t' parses a possibly-empty sequence of e's, terminated by a t. Any parse failures could be due either to a badly-formed terminator or a badly-formed element, so raise both possible errors.
Push some tokens back onto the front of the input stream and reparse. This is useful e.g. for recursively expanding macros. When the user-parser recognises a macro use, it can lookup the macro expansion from the parse state, lex it, and then stuff the lexed expansion back down into the parser.
