Scala LanguageParser Combinators


Remarks

ParseResult Cases

A ParseResult comes in three flavors:

  • Success, with a marker as to the start of the match and the next character to be matched.
  • Failure, with a marker as to the start of where the match was attempted. In this case the parser backtracks to that position, where it will be when parsing continues.
  • Error, which stops the parsing. No backtracking or further parsing occurs.
