03:46 ronsavage I've switched Image::Magick::CommandParser from Marpa to Set::FA::Element, and progress is rapid. Marpa wasn't the problem, of course, but rather that after parsing, there were an unmanageable, and growing, set of exceptions, all due to the nature of the text I'm working on.

18:19 Idiosyncrat re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2016-01-31#i_11968926 again:
18:19 Idiosyncrat It also highlights a point: many people see Marpa as hard, and so use regexes, but ...
18:20 Idiosyncrat as the post makes clear, Regexes are *not* easy, it is just that they are hard in a way that we've become used to ...
18:21 Idiosyncrat Marpa is (at least I think) much easier, but it is also unfamiliar, which makes it seem harder than it is.
