i don't know what i'm doing i can't stop writing parsers am i ever getting out of this hole? maybe after i finish just this last one?

also i have recently discovered i really want to know a grammar for the .INI format exactly as accepted/expected by MicroSoft Windows 1.01. i might alternatively settle for Windows 10.

so, you give me 372 lines and i give you a recursive-descent parser combinator EDSL for C with result memoization, ok?

This looks like a cool project.

"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."

Liebe Güsse Sakara
