Coalescing Python parser info?
» Home : Blog : November 2005
Last year, I wanted a parser generator for a Python program I was working on, and I went in search of a tool. As is typical in the Python world, I found many, of varying degrees of maturity, activity, and depth. To make sense of it all, I compiled a list or python parsing tools and put it on my site.
Since then, many people have found it. About ten people a day come to this site with search queries like "python parsing", "bison for python", "lexical analyzer python", and the like.
Recently, though, Robert Kieffer wrote to me, asking me to do the Right Thing:
So, now I ask my readers: what do you think? I still want to leave the page where it is. People are obviously able to find it, and I can put a link on the wiki page for people who don't. Does the spirit of sharing demand centralization? Is my desire for control at odds with the greater good? Am I an old timer who doesn't fully get it?
