00:04 ronsavage The web page or the FAQ? I could not find Antlr in either.
00:08 ronsavage Now I see. Antlr generates a parser, presumably given a BNF of some sort.
00:23 idiosyncrat https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/2g1mww/the_marpa_parser/ckhl9ws/
00:25 idiosyncrat That's Terence Parr on reddit, with my reply
00:30 idiosyncrat ronsavage: I thought you'd copied that exchange verbatim somewhere onto the Marpa website, but I can't find it there, so the link is to the original reddit exchange.
00:31 aindilis https://github.com/aindilis/universal-parser/tree/master/test
00:33 ronsavage I now recall reading that text, but I'm sure I did not copy it anywhere.
00:34 idiosyncrat ronsavage: My memory improves with age -- I now recall not only everything that happened, but quite a few things that didn't. :-)
00:35 ronsavage Since it's about speed and you mention both Marpa and Leo Joop, I'll copy it into the FAQ.
00:36 ronsavage My memory has gone the other way. By recalling nix, I now find nothing in reality conflicts with my memory.....
00:37 ronsavage The FAQ contains text under 'Joop Leo's improvement'.
00:47 ronsavage The updated FAQ in live: https://savage.net.au/Perl-modules/html/marpa.faq/faq.html#q150
00:47 ronsavage 'in' -> 'is'.

04:14 ronsavage JK: Have your heard of http://mesonbuild.com/?
04:24 ronsavage JK: FYI: I am reading an article about Ninja (referenced in the above's FAQ) and where it talks about how slow Make can be, it says: You'll see that GNU make, as part of its build rules, looks for RCS and SCCSmetadata! (If you're not familiar with those, they are used by an obsolete version control system. This behavior can be controlled by the -r flag to Make.).
04:24 idiosyncrat ronsavage: Looks interesting
04:25 idiosyncrat Interesting enough so that I got absorbed in reading and forgot to answer your question -- no, I had not heard of it.
04:26 idiosyncrat I'm all to familiar with both SCCS and RCS :-)  Though mercifully it's been a while since I've had to deal with either.
04:31 ronsavage Also, I encountered Meson reading about https://github.com/libfuse/sshfs.
04:33 idiosyncrat I'll take a wait-and-see approach to meson, but a lot of clear thinking went into it, and there are lots of good ideas in it.
04:34 idiosyncrat Having the courage to ditch makefiles is good.
04:34 idiosyncrat And I might steal their recommended approach to visibility even if I use nothing else.
