calling a Grammar-object with a source text as argument.

The different parsing functions are callable descendants of class
``Parser``. Usually, they are organized in a tree and defined
within the namespace of a grammar-class. See ``ebnf.EBNFGrammar``
for an example.

    """
    (Abstract) Base class for Parser combinator parsers. Any parser
    object that is actually used for parsing (i.e. no mock parsers)
    should should be derived from this class.

    Since parsers can contain other parsers (see classes UnaryOperator
    and NaryOperator) they form a cyclical directed graph. A root
    parser is a parser from which all other parsers can be reached.
    Usually, there is one root parser which serves as the starting
    point of the parsing process. When speaking of "the root parser"
    it is this root parser object that is meant.

    There are two different types of parsers:

    1. *Named parsers* for which a name is set in field `parser.name`.
       The results produced by these parsers can later be retrieved in
       the AST by the parser name.

    2. *Anonymous parsers* where the name-field just contains the empty
       string. AST-transformation of Anonymous parsers can be hooked
       only to their class name, and not to the individual parser.

    Parser objects are callable and parsing is done by calling a parser
    object with the text to parse.

    If the parser matches it returns a tuple consisting of a node
    representing the root of the concrete syntax tree resulting from the
    match as well as the substring `text[i:]` where i is the length of
    matched text (which can be zero in the case of parsers like
    `ZeroOrMore` or `Option`). If `i > 0` then the parser has "moved
    forward".

    If the parser does not match it returns `(None, text). **Note** that
    this is not the same as an empty match `("", text)`. Any empty match
    can for example be returned by the `ZeroOrMore`-parser in case the
    contained parser is repeated zero times.

    Attributes and Properties:
        visited:  Mapping of places this parser has already been to
                during the current parsing process onto the results the
                parser returned at the respective place. This dictionary
                is used to implement memoizing.

        recursion_counter:  Mapping of places to how often the parser
                has already been called recursively at this place. This
                is needed to implement left recursion. The number of
                calls becomes irrelevant once a resault has been memoized.

        cycle_detection:  The apply()-method uses this variable to make
                sure that one and the same function will not be applied
                (recursively) a second time, if it has already been
                applied to this parser.

        grammar:  A reference to the Grammar object to which the parser
                is attached.

class Grammar:
    r"""
    Class Grammar directs the parsing process and stores global state
    information of the parsers, i.e. state information that is shared
    accross parsers.

    Grammars are basically collections of parser objects, which are
    connected to an instance object of class Grammar. There exist two
    ways of connecting parsers to grammar objects: Either by passing
    the root parser object to the constructor of a Grammar object
    ("direct instantiation"), or by assigning the root parser to the
    class variable "root__" of a descendant class of class Grammar.

eckhart's avatar
eckhart committed
527
    Example for direct instantiation of a grammar::
528

529
        >>> number = RE('\d+') + RE('\.') + RE('\d+') | RE('\d+')

        >>> number_parser = Grammar(number)
        >>> number_parser("3.1416").content
        '3.1416'

    Collecting the parsers that define a grammar in a descendant class of
    class Grammar and assigning the named parsers to class variables
    rather than global variables has several advantages:

    1. It keeps the namespace clean.

    2. The parser names of named parsers do not need to be passed to the
       constructor of the Parser object explicitly, but it suffices to
       assign them to class variables, which results in better
       readability of the Python code.

    3. The parsers in the class do not necessarily need to be connected
       to one single root parser, which is helpful for testing and
       building up a parser successively of several components.

    As a consequence, though, it is highly recommended that a Grammar
    class should not define any other variables or methods with names
    that are legal parser names. A name ending with a double
    underscore '__' is *not* a legal parser name and can safely be
    used.

    Example::

557
558
559
560
561
562
563
564

        class Arithmetic(Grammar):
            # special fields for implicit whitespace and comment configuration
            COMMENT__ = r'#.*(?:\n|$)'  # Python style comments
            wspR__ = mixin_comment(whitespace=r'[\t ]*', comment=COMMENT__)

            # parsers
            expression = Forward()
            INTEGER = RE('\\d+')
565
566
567
            factor = INTEGER | TKN("(") + expression + TKN(")")
            term = factor + ZeroOrMore((TKN("*") | TKN("/")) + factor)
            expression.set(term + ZeroOrMore((TKN("+") | TKN("-")) + term))

            root__ = expression

    Upon instantiation the parser objects are deep-copied to the
    Grammar object and assigned to object variables of the same name.
    Any parser that is directly assigned to a class variable is a
    'named' parser and its field `parser.name` contains the variable
    name after instantiation of the Grammar class. All other parsers,
    i.e. parsers that are defined within a `named` parser, remain
    "anonymous parsers" where `parser.name` is the empty string, unless
    a name has been passed explicitly upon instantiation.
    If one and the same parser is assigned to several class variables
    such as, for example the parser `expression` in the example above,
    the first name sticks.

    Grammar objects are callable. Calling a grammar object with a UTF-8
    encoded document, initiates the parsing of the document with the
    root parser. The return value is the concrete syntax tree. Grammar
    objects can be reused (i.e. called again) after parsing. Thus, it
    is not necessary to instantiate more than one Grammar object per
    thread.

    Grammar classes contain a few special class fields for implicit
    whitespace and comments that should be overwritten, if the defaults
    (no comments, horizontal right aligned whitespace) don't fit:

593
594
595
596
597
    Attributes:
        root__:  The root parser of the grammar. Theoretically, all parsers of the
                 grammar should be reachable by the root parser. However, for testing
                 of yet incomplete grammars class Grammar does not assume that this
                 is the case.

                least once so that the parsing-variables need to be reset
                when it is called again.

                currently being parsed.

               ``self.grammar.tree__.add_error``, but it references the full
               parsing tree only after parsing has been finished.

642
        _reversed__:  the same text in reverse order - needed by the `Lookbehind`-
643
644
645
                parsers.

        variables__:  A mapping for variable names to a stack of their respective
646
647
                string values - needed by the :class:`Capture`-, :class:`Retrieve`-
                and :class:`Pop`-parsers.
648
649

        rollback__:  A list of tuples (location, rollback-function) that are
650
651
652
653
                deposited by the :class:`Capture`- and :class:`Pop`-parsers.
                If the parsing process reaches a dead end then all
                rollback-functions up to the point to which it retreats will be
                called and the state of the variable stack restored accordingly.
654
655
656

        last_rb__loc__:  The last, i.e. most advanced location in the text
                where a variable changing operation occurred. If the parser
657
658
                backtracks to a location at or before last_rb__loc__ (i.e.
                location <= last_rb__loc__) then a rollback of all variable
659
660
                changing operations is necessary that occurred after the
                location to which the parser backtracks. This is done by
661
                calling method :func:`rollback_to__(location)`.
662

663
664
        call_stack__:  A stack of the tag names of all parsers that have been called.
                This is required for recording the parser history (for debugging)
665
666
667
668
669
670
671
672
673
674
                and, eventually, i.e. one day in the future, for tracing through
                the parsing process.

        history__:  A list of parser-call-stacks. A parser-call-stack is
                appended to the list each time a parser either matches, fails
                or if a parser-error occurs.

        moving_forward__: This flag indicates that the parsing process is currently
                moving forward . It is needed to reduce noise in history recording
                and should not be considered as having a valid value if history
675
676
                recording is turned off! (See :func:`add_parser_guard` and its local
                function :func:`guarded_call`)
677
678
679
680

        recursion_locations__:  Stores the locations where left recursion was
                detected. Needed to provide minimal memoization for the left
                recursion detection algorithm, but, strictly speaking, superfluous
681
682
                if full memoization is enabled. (See :func:`add_parser_guard` and its
                local function :func:`guarded_call`)

686
687
688
689
690
691
692

        memoization__:  Turns full memoization on or off. Turning memoization off
                results in less memory usage and sometimes reduced parsing time.
                In some situations it may drastically increase parsing time, so
                it is safer to leave it on. (Default: on)

        left_recursion_handling__:  Turns left recursion handling on or off.
                If turned off, a recursion error will result in case of left
                recursion.
