00:07 idiosyncrat_ A new blog post from me: "Fast handy languages"
00:08 idiosyncrat_ It's kind of a summary of what Marpa is for.
00:08 idiosyncrat_ There are some details on when you can rely on a Marpa grammar being fast (linear).
00:09 idiosyncrat_ And there is a section on "When NOT to use Marpa"
04:15 rns idiosyncrat: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/m​arpa/2015-08-30#i_11144857 -- looks lke ANTLR -- https://github.com/apache/pig/se​arch?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=antlr and @rulecatch

15:35 idiosyncrat_ Good morning.
15:35 idiosyncrat_ I expect to go AFK shortly,
15:36 idiosyncrat_ but there is a reddit thread on my latest blog post: https://www.reddit.com/r/programmi​ng/comments/3j0zfu/fast_handy_lang​uages_an_article_about_fast_marpa/
15:37 idiosyncrat_ A frequently asked question now is "How does Marpa work?", which is slightly perplexing since the first line of both web pages describes exactly what kind of algorithm it is.
15:38 idiosyncrat_ I take a hack at a quick answer in the reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/​comments/3j0zfu/fast_handy_languages_​an_article_about_fast_marpa/culw35c
15:38 idiosyncrat_ That's good because initially I talked a lot about how it works, with little interest in response, ,...
15:39 idiosyncrat_ so I refocused on what it can do.
15:40 idiosyncrat_ And it is good that folks ask how it works, because there has been a steady stream of new parsers over the years with bold claims and mysterious innards.
15:41 idiosyncrat_ Marpa's innards to be sure are complex, but they are *not* mysterious -- all the traditional apparatus of proofs and references to the literature is there is establish *why* it is that it works.
15:41 idiosyncrat_ And the *why* is a very legitimate question.
15:42 idiosyncrat_ AFK

18:55 pczarn Earley algorithm on the chip would be interesting. Someone should make a prototype with FPGA.
18:56 pczarn It'll need external RAM. Strand parsing probably requires too much logic.
19:03 pczarn Unfortunately, Earley sets shouldn't have duplicates. There has to be a central data structure.
