Paresc is a great piece of software. But there are some things which
do bother me occasionally.
A short list:
Things I'd like to change:
a) custom location tracking. (I've already written a patch, but I
haven't tested how much speed will suffer? Which would be a nice test?)
b) Add a function returning a monadic result
(thus either (fail . show) return each time .. )
because I feel like doing this all the time.
c) make some functions more generic
(these functions should work with any token type):
anyChar -> anyToken
char -> expectToken
string -> expectTokens
d) export some simple functions such as nat decimal etc..
Sometimes all I just want to get an integer without importing
Tokens and specifying a language..
shapr / sorear suggested asking SPJ to contact Daan Leijen.
Perhaps there are different approaches to address the issues above?
Do you also have some patches / suggestions ?
