01:45 jeffreykegler I believe Terence Parr has entered into the reddit discussion.
01:46 jeffreykegler Terence Parr is the author of ANTLR, which is an effort with motivation to Marpa ...
01:47 jeffreykegler the difference is I went with Earley's and he went with trying to take left parsing to the max.
01:47 jeffreykegler Terence, when it comes to left parsing, very much knows what's he's doing.
01:48 jeffreykegler If I were trying to solve the parsing problem using a left parsing approach, I don't think anything I could do could be much of an improvement on what he's done.
01:50 jeffreykegler Terence's comment: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9_mR_M2zOc4Ni1zSW5IYzk3TGc/edit?usp=sharing
01:53 jeffreykegler * with motivation to Marpa -> with a motivation similar to Marpa's
02:00 ronsavage1 That links to your Marpa doc.
02:00 jeffreykegler http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/2g1mww/the_marpa_parser/ckhl9ws
02:01 jeffreykegler Ooops!
02:01 jeffreykegler The above is more like it, I hope.
02:23 ronsavage1 Did you update your timeline with a link to the time claims doc? That would preempt some negative comments.
02:25 jeffreykegler If I'd known Terence Parr would be reading it, I would have included the link. :-)
02:29 jeffreykegler I'll be looking it over, over the next week.  It's a strange mix -- all about algorithms, instead of tools, but also also about the practical applications of the algorithms --
02:30 jeffreykegler aimed at the non-scholar, but full of Theory of Parsing terminology --
02:32 jeffreykegler I'll be touching it up over the next few days, but nothing major.
