Description

Commonly used generic combinators. Note that all combinators works with any Alternative instances.

Synopsis

# Documentation

between :: Applicative m => m open -> m close -> m a -> m a Source #

between open close p parses open, followed by p and close. Returns the value returned by p.

braces = between (symbol "{") (symbol "}")

choice :: (Foldable f, Alternative m) => f (m a) -> m a Source #

choice ps tries to apply the parsers in the list ps in order, until one of them succeeds. Returns the value of the succeeding parser.

count :: Applicative m => Int -> m a -> m [a] Source #

count n p parses n occurrences of p. If n is smaller or equal to zero, the parser equals to return []. Returns a list of n values.

count' :: Alternative m => Int -> Int -> m a -> m [a] Source #

count' m n p parses from m to n occurrences of p. If n is not positive or m > n, the parser equals to return []. Returns a list of parsed values.

Please note that m may be negative, in this case effect is the same as if it were equal to zero.

eitherP :: Alternative m => m a -> m b -> m (Either a b) Source #

Combine two alternatives.

Since: 4.4.0

endBy :: Alternative m => m a -> m sep -> m [a] Source #

endBy p sep parses zero or more occurrences of p, separated and ended by sep. Returns a list of values returned by p.

cStatements = cStatement endBy semicolon

endBy1 :: Alternative m => m a -> m sep -> m [a] Source #

endBy1 p sep parses one or more occurrences of p, separated and ended by sep. Returns a list of values returned by p.

manyTill :: Alternative m => m a -> m end -> m [a] Source #

manyTill p end applies parser p zero or more times until parser end succeeds. Returns the list of values returned by p. This parser can be used to scan comments:

simpleComment = string "<!--" >> manyTill anyChar (string "-->")

someTill :: Alternative m => m a -> m end -> m [a] Source #

someTill p end works similarly to manyTill p end, but p should succeed at least once.

option :: Alternative m => a -> m a -> m a Source #

option x p tries to apply parser p. If p fails without consuming input, it returns the value x, otherwise the value returned by p.

priority = option 0 (digitToInt <\$> digitChar)

sepBy :: Alternative m => m a -> m sep -> m [a] Source #

sepBy p sep parses zero or more occurrences of p, separated by sep. Returns a list of values returned by p.

commaSep p = p sepBy comma

sepBy1 :: Alternative m => m a -> m sep -> m [a] Source #

sepBy1 p sep parses one or more occurrences of p, separated by sep. Returns a list of values returned by p.

sepEndBy :: Alternative m => m a -> m sep -> m [a] Source #

sepEndBy p sep parses zero or more occurrences of p, separated and optionally ended by sep. Returns a list of values returned by p.

sepEndBy1 :: Alternative m => m a -> m sep -> m [a] Source #

sepEndBy1 p sep parses one or more occurrences of p, separated and optionally ended by sep. Returns a list of values returned by p.

skipMany :: Alternative m => m a -> m () Source #

skipMany p applies the parser p zero or more times, skipping its result.

space = skipMany spaceChar

skipSome :: Alternative m => m a -> m () Source #

skipSome p applies the parser p one or more times, skipping its result.
