By Jochen Voss, on
Today I published the first version of a parser generator for Python. Currently it only generates LR(1) parsers, i.e. it is not very useful for big grammars. I hope to add support for LALR(1) parsers in the future.
One problem is the choice of a project name: I came up with
Wisent since this fits together well with
Bison. But unfortunately
I am not the first one to think so, there are at least two other parser
generators which also use the name Wisent, and most likely I will rename
my program. Suggestions for a better name, preferably with
connotations, are very welcome.
This is an excerpt from Jochen's blog.
