Synopsis

# The Parser datatype

newtype Parser a #

This Parser datatype is a specialised parsing monad with error reporting. Whereas the standard version can be used for arbitrary token types, this version is specialised to ByteString input only.

Constructors

 P (ByteString -> Result ByteString a)

runParser :: Parser a -> ByteString -> (Either String a, ByteString) #

Apply a parser to an input token sequence.

## Basic parsers

Simply return the next token in the input tokenstream.

eof :: Parser () #

Succeed if the end of file/input has been reached, fail otherwise.

satisfy :: (Char -> Bool) -> Parser Char #

Return the next token if it satisfies the given predicate.

onFail :: Parser a -> Parser a -> Parser a #

p onFail q means parse p, unless p fails, in which case parse q instead. Can be chained together to give multiple attempts to parse something. (Note that q could itself be a failing parser, e.g. to change the error message from that defined in p to something different.) However, a severe failure in p cannot be ignored.

## Derived parsers (but implemented more efficiently)

manySatisfy :: (Char -> Bool) -> Parser ByteString #

manySatisfy p is a more efficient fused version of many (satisfy p)

many1Satisfy :: (Char -> Bool) -> Parser ByteString #

many1Satisfy p is a more efficient fused version of many1 (satisfy p)

## Re-parsing

reparse :: ByteString -> Parser () #

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.
