Re: Bug#668556: ITP: dparser -- a scannerless GLR parser generator
* Markus Wanner <email@example.com>, 2012-04-14, 10:45:
I would like to suggest to explicit the "GLR", "RPF", and perhaps
"EBNF" acronyms in the long description.
Thanks for your suggestions.
GLR means "Generalized Left-to-right Rightmost deviation parser" or
maybe "Generalized LR parser". EBNF is the Extended Backus–Naur Form.
Acronyms like these - i.e. LL, LL(k), SLR, LALR - are pretty common
when talking about parsers.
Sure, they are also much more common than GLR. And if you are "just"
interested in parsing and not a computer scientists, there's a chance
you've never heard about any of them.
