17:55 shadowpaste "jdurand" at 217.168.150.38 pasted "Example of exception syntax in ESLIF (Extended SLIF)" (6 lines) at http://fpaste.scsys.co.uk/539878
17:56 jdurand FYI c.f. the pastebin just upper, my famous awaing ESLIF (Extended SLIF) is near completion! In particular, I have implementeded the notion of "exception", as show in the example above, which also shows the support of regular expressions...
18:02 jdurand Everything in writen in C, To achieve that; I have writen from scratch a marpa wrapper library, a portable iconv library, a generic stack, a generic hash, and the ESLIF itself! This represent approximatively 15'000 lines of C code as per SLOCCOUNT -;

21:42 ronsavage jduand: Am I right in thinking your syntax "<start> ::= <chars> - <startException>" means the rule is <chars> but raise an exception if <startException> matches the input stream? I'm confused. Since <chars> can be empty I read "<startException> ::= <chars> ':' <chars>" as meaning /any/ ':' triggers the exception. So why have ':' in the set in the first place? I assume I'm misunderstood :-).
21:43 ronsavage Typo alert! "I'm" => "I've".
