03:12 idiosyncrat Demat!
03:12 idiosyncrat === What I have been up to wrt Marpa ===
03:12 idiosyncrat I am *still* in the documentation phase for the new valuator methods.
03:14 idiosyncrat I have left packaging & documenting the multi-block input methods until later, and wound up doing that (that is the documentiation & final touches on the multi-block input IF) along with documenting the new valuator.
03:15 idiosyncrat The multi-block method elminates some restrictions in Marpa::R2 -- Marpa::R2 for example, could not handle a truly "on-line" application, because the entire input had to be known in advance.
03:16 idiosyncrat Other apps which naturally looked at the input as multiple blocks (for example, C language, where several files can be #include'd in a single compilation) could only be handled by making the input look like a single long string, which placed an annoying burden on the app.
03:17 idiosyncrat All these restrictions are now lifted and Marpa::R3 now has the most flexible input model of any parser that I know of.
03:17 idiosyncrat And the documentation will be complete and thorough, the IF is fully tested in the test suite, etc etc etc.
03:19 idiosyncrat I had left things with the multi-block IF at the point where I knew it worked -- I had converted everything else to use it as its lower layer, so it *had* to work or nothing else would. :-)
03:20 idiosyncrat But I left actual documentation, last minute user IF details, full inclusion of the user IF in the test suite, etc, for later.
03:20 idiosyncrat "Later" was now, and that's what I've been doing. :-)
04:39 ronsavage Sounds like you're happy with this new progress, and in that case we all are too.
