00:01 ronsavage No. And next time someone says it, tell them to hold their breath for 50 years, and after that get back to you!
01:13 Aria Hah. You are so right. Parsing is so performance-constrained.

02:03 jeffreykegler Yes.  It was my thought that Marpa users would pay attention to performance -- because of course the rap against Earley's has been performance.
02:03 jeffreykegler It got that reputation based on its performance on 1970's machines and folks have never updated their thinking.

02:06 jeffreykegler The above link is a blog post I did about the performance issue a while ago, for those who missed it -- it shows that Marpa/Leo/Earley parsers are, with current technology, easily fast enough for production.
02:16 Aria Quite.
