This is an experimental implementation of parser combinators for Common Lisp. This is mostly inspired by Parsec, but with limited optimizations. Parser combinators are, in theory, an elegant form of constructing parsers for context-free grammars.

The name of the system is parser-combinators, despite the name of the GitHub repository. The library is fairly lightly tested. Any comments or questions on the functionality or performance are welcome.


The test suite has some additional dependencies, all of which are in quicklisp


There is some documentation in the doc directory.
