I haven’t programmed in a while, but I want to get back with doing
some parsing for a text adventure I want to make. I know it’s not
Ruby’s specialty, but it’s nice to try and learn how to do something
like this in a language that has good string support.
So 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? I think I’ve
heard that regex is the modern parsing algorithm. Or would a different
library be more helpful for me right now?
