Announcement -- ZestyParser

P: n/a
This has been on Cheese Shop for a few weeks now, being updated now and
then, but I never really announced it. I just now put up a real web
page for it, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to mention it here.

ZestyParser is my attempt at a flexible toolkit for creating concise,
precise, and Pythonic parsers. None of the existing packages really met
my needs; Pyparsing came the closest, but I find it still has some
shortcomings. ZestyParser is simply an abstract implementation of how I
think about parsing; I don't expect it'll meet everyone's parsing
needs, but I hope it'll make typical parsing tasks more joyful.

Here's the web page:

Here's the Cheese Shop page:
http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/ZestyParser
(I recommend you get the source package, as it includes the examples.)

Check it out and let me know what you think!

I would like to look at the examples online (along with the doc file)
before downloading this and setuptools and installing, so I can see what
it actually looks like in use.

Yes, I second that.

I poked around for a little while but could not find a single example.
Then I gave up as I'm not going to install something before knowing
what it is.

Thanks for the responses; you're right, and I have now posted the
examples online. I just released version 0.6.0, by the way, which has
several worthwhile improvements and much better documentation. It also
includes an example for parsing RDF Notation3, to demonstrate a parsing
task a bit more complex than the other examples.

That's all posted at <http://adamatlas.org/2006/12/ZestyParser/now.

I'm very interesting in this project, and I see there are many
examples, but there are no input data files. So I don't know how to
test them. Can you send me some testing data files or just add them
into the tarball file, so others can easy test the examples.
