I haven’t done a post in a while, but I thought the boost spirit library was worth an entry. Spirit provides a way of specifying and parsing a custom language grammar right inline in C++ without the need for a code generator like lex/yacc. Spirit makes it so easy to specify and use a grammar that you should never hand write even the most trivial parser again.
The full code for this example can be found here.5 comments
