Apologies. Yes, documentation will exist when I find the time. Meanwhile, the
At YAPC::NA 2010, Schwern mentioned to me that he wanted a runnable parser
that faithfully tracks the grammar in the draft spec, rather than what
Test-Harness or anything else uses, and I volunteered to try writing it.
The intention is not for anyone to use this parser in production, but to
bundle a comprehensive test suite with it, and to keep it updated in sync with
any changes in the draft grammar, providing a way to keep tabs on any bugs,
regressions, or wanted features (TODO tests) for the draft spec.
The previous versions were semi-unusable due to Regexp::Grammars and without
any interest from anyone else the project stalled, but I got the inspiration
to do a total rewrite this weekend, and now things are much better.
Suggestions and patches are welcome.
