Two key areas of focus are (compared to say Pegged):
- performance, on par with hand-written code or die
I didn't profile, but apart from the time-complexity that is
inherent to straight forward recursive descent parsers like
Pegged (improved by memoization), my impression is that Pegged's
main performance problem is due to a very high constant: it is
concatenating strings, all the time. A LOT of strings, and a LOT
of concatenations. Almost all of them are discarded, of course.
Finding a way to do the same without string concatenation would
have a big impact.
