00:17 Idiosyncrat Toying with an idea, which I don't have time to follow up on --
00:17 Idiosyncrat A Marpa-powered PEG imitation.
00:18 Idiosyncrat With Marpa, the choices can be made top-down, using its Abstract Syntax Forests ...
00:18 Idiosyncrat and my thought is this would make PEG less tricky.
00:19 Idiosyncrat In native PEG, you have to make the choices bottom-up, at a point where you don't know the context ...
00:19 Idiosyncrat which is why PEG is so tricky.
00:20 Idiosyncrat A second factor would be that Marpa is much more powerful in the grammars that it can handle, so there will be much less use of the choice mechanism ...
00:20 Idiosyncrat in many cases you'll be also to specify what you want in BNF.
00:21 Idiosyncrat If written as a layer over the SLIF, this PEG++, would have the overhead of the SLIF, ...
00:22 Idiosyncrat but I PEG's interface is seductive, and many applications are not demanding in terms of speed.
00:22 Idiosyncrat Time complexity (as opposed to speed) would of course be excellent.
00:34 Idiosyncrat My thought behind this is that PEG+Marpa would have PEG's attractive interface but, unlike with PEG, it would be WYSIWYG.
