09:34 Ven ah, no, I meant to be sarcastic there..
09:38 masak aha. I considered that a possibility, but a <5% one.
09:39 masak you need to make your comments more Poe's Law-resilient ;)
09:41 Ven`` I thought talking positively about C parsers was enough resilience :P.
09:57 masak not to me, I'm relentlessly language-positive :D
09:58 Ven`` then you need more reading of the Perl 5 and Ruby C parsers :-).
10:02 masak I need to read more source code in general. I like it when I actually do.
10:02 masak but I am well aware that parsers in the real world make compromises, sometimes horribly so
10:03 masak the parser in cpython looked unusually sane to me -- which is kind of what I would expect of anything Python
10:18 Ven`` I've seen a few too-nested switches, but otherwise, yes, compared to Ruby's, or the worse of them all, Perl, it seemed sane.
10:19 masak but, I mean, anything in C is bound to disappoint if your expectation is on the level of Parsec or Perl 6's grammars
10:20 Ven`` well I've seen really nice C parsers, and I've seen some worse.
10:20 Ven`` Even yacc-based.
10:27 Ven`` .oO( i've even written some offenders )
21:20 Ven`` joined #6macros
