02:36 idiosyncrat Demat!
02:41 idiosyncrat In Marpa::R3 I've changed ambiguity_metric() to ambiguity_level().
02:42 idiosyncrat I was "metric" because I hoped to come up with a number which was 1) cheap to compute; but 2) indicative of the number of parses.
02:43 idiosyncrat The best I ever did was 0 for no parse, 1 for unambiguous and 2 for ambiguous.  It *was* cheap to compute; and *did* give all the answer most apps wanted ...
02:43 idiosyncrat but it wasn't much of a "metric".
02:43 idiosyncrat So I've demoted it from "metric" to "level".
