I want to start learning to parse, so naturally I go to Goolge. But
of course, I got a lot of XML and stuff like that and that’s really
not what I’m looking for (I think). So where do I start?
If you are serious about real parsing (e.g. to the point where you can
a compiler) then invest in a book. “Compilers: Principles, Techniques
Tools” by Aho, Sethi and Ullman is a classic text.
