[Edinburgh-pm] Marpa::HTML

There's been some chat on the lists about parsing real-world broken
HTML in Perl. I noticed this


and wondered if anyone might be interested, or perhaps had used it?
The author claims that his underlying parsing engine
can parse any context-free grammar in O(n^3) time and any LL/LR/etc
grammar in O(n) time, and has nice error reporting. On the other hand,
he says it's alpha software (and Marpa::XS, released only a month ago,
is presumably doubly alpha).

There's more on Marpa and the author's mission to kill Yacc at his
blog, http://blogs.perl.org/users/jeffrey_kegler/.
