Reia: Pluggable Parsers

One stand-out quality of the Ruby community is a fascination with obtaining and manipulating Ruby parse trees.  Such a fascination exists in many languages, but it's particularly weird in Ruby because until Ruby 1.9 there was no first-class way to obtain a Ruby parse tree.  People went spelunking with C code into Ruby's internals, ripping the parse tree right out and exposing it back to the Ruby environment.  Eventually Ruby parsers were implemented in Ruby itself in various projects.  Yet it remains that while Ruby as a language seems to attract parse tree tinkerers, the language itself does not provide first-class ways to satisfy their needs.

I firmly believe that being able to obtain a parse tree for the programming language you're using is important and should be a first-class language feature.  To that end, Reia supports a String#parse method:

>> "2+2".parse()
=> [(:binary_op,1,:'+',(:integer,1,2),(:integer,1,2))]

This parses the "2+2" string as Reia source code.  The result might remind you a little bit of Lisp: it's a Reia parse tree.  Right now there aren't immediate uses for Reia parse trees, but I'd soon like to add an interface for compiling/executing them.  Erlang supports a feature called "parse transforms" which allow on-the-fly transformations of Erlang syntax.  I'd also like to add such a feature to Reia.

If String#parse were just used to parse Reia source code it'd be a bit of a waste.  However, it can be used for more than just that.  For example, parsing JSON (as of tonight):

>> '{"foo": [1,2,3], "bar": [4,5,6]}'.parse(:json)    
=> {"foo"=>[1,2,3],"bar"=>[4,5,6]}

After some recent problems dealing with JSON libraries in Ruby, I really felt JSON parsing should be part of the standard library.  With this syntax, it almost feels like JSON parsing is part of the core language.  Rubyists generally implement that sort of thing by monkeypatching the core types.  Reia lets anyone define their own String#parse method by defining special module names, with no modifications to the core types required (which Reia doesn't let you do anyway).

To better understand how this works, let's take a look at how Reia implements String#parse:

def parse(format)
  "#{format.to_s().capitalize()}Parser".to_module().parse(self)
end

Given a format of :foobar, String#parse will capitalize the argument into "Foobar", then look for a "FoobarParser" module to parse itself with.  This means anyone can add a parser to the language just by defining a module name that ends with "Parser" and has a parse method which accepts a string as an argument.

In short, anyone can add a parser to the language which can be called with a simple, elegant syntax.  No monkeypatching required.

عندما يحين وقت الاعتناء بالمكيف وتنظيفة يجب الحرص عند اختيار من يقوم بهذه المهمة الصعبة فإذا أخطأنا ولجأنا لغير المحترفين قد ينتج عن ذلك المزيد من الإضرار فهم ليسوا علي دراية بنوع المكيف أو الطريقة الصحيحة للتعامل معه كما أنهم قد يستخدمون منظفات مجهولة المصدر وغير أمنة تماما علي الصحة العامة وقد تسبب في تأكل جسم المكيف وتراكم الصدأ علي جوانبه مما يشوه مظهره الخارجي وتقليل كفاءته حتي يتوقف عن العمل نهائيا نتيجة الإهمال واللجوء للهواة لذا يجب أن نختار من هم آهل للثقة فشركة تنظيف مكيفات اسبليت بالرياض من أفضل الشركات في هذا المجال فهي الأولي في مجال تنظيف المكيفات بكل أنواعها فطاقم عملها مدرب علي أعلي مستوي ويحصل بشكل دوري علي دورات تدريبية تنظمها الشركة لتحديث كفاءتهم وطلباتهم علي كل ما هو جديد ارقام صيانة مكيفات اسبليت بالرياض

خانواده یکی از پایه های اصلی هر جامعه ای به شمار می رود. اما متاسفانه امروزه می توان به وضوح افزایش علل طلاق مثل مشکلات اقتصادی، اعتیاد و .. را دید و به طور حتم شاهد افزایش انواع طلاق نیز هستیم. اما واقعا تنها همین ها را باید برای طلاق در نظر داشته باشیم!
پس آن همه عشق و علاقه ای که در ابتدای زندگی بود چه می شود. شاید کمی عصبانی هستید و دارید زود تصمیم می گیرید.از خواننده خواهشمندیم کمی صبورانه و با تامل بیشتر به کاری که می خواهد انجام دهد فکر کند. از انواع طلاق می توان به طلاق رجعی و طلاق بائن اشاره کرد که طلاق بائن خود به شش قسمت تقسیم می شود. در این مقاله به اصلی ترین آن ها اشاره کرده ایم.
اقسام و انواع طلاق
طبق ماده 1143 قانون مدنی در کشور ما انواع طلاق بر دو شکل است: طلاق رجعی که در آن مرد اجازه رجوع دارد و طلاق بائن که در حقیقت دادخواست طلاق از طرف زن است و پس از طلاق مرد حق رجوع به زن را ندارد مگر تحت شرایطی که در ادامه توضیح داده خواهد شد.
طلاق رجعی
نوعی از انواع طلاق است که در ایام عده مرد به لحاظ شرعی و قانونی میتواند رجوع کند در حقیقت طلاق رجعی طلاق از طرف مرد است. طلاق رجعی، رابطه زوجیت را از بین نمیبرد مگر با دو عامل طلاق و انقضای عده
زن در مدت عده طلاق رجعی زوجه محصوب می گردد وباید تا پایان عده زن ومرد در یک منزل زندگی کنند، در این زمان که حدود سه ماه (سه طهر، طهر واحد شرعی محاسبه ی عده است که می توانید مقاله عده را در همین سایت بخوانید) است مرد موظف به دادن نفقه ی زوجه می باشد. اگر در این مدت مرد به زوجه رجوع کند که دیگر طلاق منتفی است ودر صورتی که چنین نشود در پایان عده جهت طلاق و ثبت به دفترخانه مراجعه می کنند.
به این موضوع مهم توجه داشته باشید که در صورت وقوع رجوع حداکثر تا یک ماه فرصت ثبت این موضوع در دفترخانه را دارید در غیر این صورت به حبس تعزیری و یا جزای نقدی محکوم خواهید شد.

Permainan ini sering mengintimidasi banyak orang, karena taruhan plethora ada dalam meja tersebut. Ketika terdapat jumlah taruhan yandg dapat di pasang.

Sebagian besar taruhan yang umum di pasang adalah pass atau dont pass. Bagian ini menjadi sangat sederhana untuk di pahami, https://www.menangpialadunia2018.com/ dan kita akan memberikan detailnya dibawah ini.

Sebelum memulai putaran game craps, akan terdapat button Black atau White dalam meja yang memiliki tulisan OFF. Ini artinya tidak ada poin yang di atur, dan pemain masih bisa melakukan pemasangan taruhan.

One obstacle to the implementation of modular extensions to programming languages lies in the problem of parsing extended languages. Specifically, the parse tables at the heart of traditional LALR(1) parsers are so monolithic and tightly constructed that, in the general case, it is impossible to extend them without regenerating them from the source grammar. Current extensible frameworks employ a variety of solutions, ranging from a full regeneration to using pluggable binary modules for each different extension. But recompilation is time-consuming, while the pluggable modules in many cases cannot support the addition of more than one extension, or use backtracking or non-deterministic parsing techniques. We present here a middle-ground approach that allows an extension, if it meets certain restrictions, to be compiled into a parse table fragment. The host language parse table and fragments from multiple extensions can then always be efficiently composed to produce a conflict-free parse table for the extended language. This allows for the distribution of deterministic parsers for extensible languages in a pre-compiled format, eliminating the need for the “source code” grammar to be distributed. In practice, we have found these restrictions to be reasonable and admit many useful language extensions. https://www.progressiveoffice.com.au/office-fitouts-melbourne/

For that purpose, MaxScale is equipped with an SQL parser for parsing statements.
