00:48 jeffreykegler A note for those trying to recode the Marpa parse engine from scratch.
00:49 jeffreykegler It may seem strange, but the fastest way there may be via helping with Kollos.
00:49 jeffreykegler I'll explain.
00:49 jeffreykegler When Kollos is far enough along, I plan to move many things now done in Libmarpa up to the higher layer.
00:50 jeffreykegler Once this is done, I can simplify Libmarpa.
00:50 jeffreykegler I think the simplification may be considerable -- Libmarpa might be as much as 50% smaller.
00:52 jeffreykegler One example -- right now Libmarpa handles rules with cycles, and whenever traversing any hierarchy of ruiles, it has to have code to detect a cycle and deal with it.
00:52 jeffreykegler With Kollos, I'll handle cycles by rewriting the grammar.  That done, all that tricky special case code in Libmarpa can simply be deleted.

18:08 jeffreykegler A question just came into the Google group about SQL parsing.
18:09 jeffreykegler What's the largest Marpa-powered SQL subset out there as open source now?  Anyone know?
18:11 jeffreykegler There's one in my test suite, but it is small, eccentric in its focus, and pre-SLIF, so it's really not of much use as a model or a start.

19:06 jeffreykegler It's been clear to me for some time that Jean-Damien has had something up his sleeve.
19:06 jeffreykegler He's now announced it (some of it?) on Google+, which is the above link.

20:58 rns_ jeffreykegler: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2014-12-04#i_9759268 -- Jean Damien's https://github.com/jddurand/MarpaX-Languages-SQL-AST, I think.
