Just incase you guys are curious the reason for doing the parser from scratch is it is designed to lex/parse families of languages not just a single lang for example (there is very large overlap between c/c++/java/c#/etc. as there is in the tag langs like XML/HTML)... also generators produce unreadable code (and impossible to hand modify if you're not quite happy with the generated code) thus I refer to the design as a heiractical recursive decent parser (i.e. it lexs/parses the commonalties of a family [or set of families {all ascii vs, unicode langs for example are a set of families} before it attempts to handle the actual lang [or family in the case of set of families]).
