class Parser(ParserBase):
    """
    (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.

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.

352
    Example for direct instantiation of a grammar:

        >>> 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.

        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+')
            factor = INTEGER | Token("(") + expression + Token(")")
            term = factor + ZeroOrMore((Token("*") | Token("/")) + factor)
            expression.set(term + ZeroOrMore((Token("+") | Token("-")) + 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:

418
419
420
421
422
423
424
    Attributes:
        COMMENT__:  regular expression string for matching comments

        WSP__:   regular expression for whitespace and comments

        wspL__:  regular expression string for left aligned whitespace,
                 which either equals WSP__ or is empty.
425

426
427
        wspR__:  regular expression string for right aligned whitespace,
                 which either equals WSP__ or is empty.
428

429
430
431
432
        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.
433

434
435
436
437
438
        parser_initializiation__:  Before the parser class (!) has been initialized,
                 which happens upon the first time it is instantiated (see
                 :func:_assign_parser_names()` for an explanation), this class
                 field contains a value other than "done". A value of "done" indicates
                 that the class has already been initialized.
439
440
441
442
443
444
445
446

    Attributes:
        all_parsers__:  A set of all parsers connected to this grammar object

        history_tracking__:  A flag indicating that the parsing history shall
                be tracked

        wsp_left_parser__:  A parser for the default left-adjacent-whitespace
447
                or the :class:zombie-parser if the
448
                default is empty. The default whitespace will be used by parsers
449
450
                :class:`Token` and, if no other parsers are passed to its constructor,
                by parser :class:`RE`.
451
452
453
454

        wsp_right_parser__: The same for the default right-adjacent-whitespace.
                Both wsp_left_parser__ and wsp_right_parser__ merely serve the
                purpose to avoid having to specify the default whitespace
455
                explicitly every time an :class:`RE`-parser-object is created.
456
457
458
459
460
461
462
463

        _dirty_flag__:  A flag indicating that the Grammar has been called at
                least once so that the parsing-variables need to be reset
                when it is called again.

        document__:  the text that has most recently been parsed or that is
                currently being parsed.

eckhart's avatar
eckhart committed
464
465
        document_length__:  the length of the document.

466
467
468
        document_lbreaks__:  list of linebreaks within the document, starting
                with -1 and ending with EOF. This helps generating line
                and column number for history recording and will only be
469
                initialized if :attr:`history_tracking__` is true.
470

471
        _reversed__:  the same text in reverse order - needed by the `Lookbehind`-
472
473
474
                parsers.

        variables__:  A mapping for variable names to a stack of their respective
475
476
                string values - needed by the :class:`Capture`-, :class:`Retrieve`-
                and :class:`Pop`-parsers.
477
478

        rollback__:  A list of tuples (location, rollback-function) that are
479
480
481
482
                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.
483
484
485

        last_rb__loc__:  The last, i.e. most advanced location in the text
                where a variable changing operation occurred. If the parser
486
487
                backtracks to a location at or before last_rb__loc__ (i.e.
                location <= last_rb__loc__) then a rollback of all variable
488
489
                changing operations is necessary that occurred after the
                location to which the parser backtracks. This is done by
490
                calling method :func:`rollback_to__(location)`.

498
499
500
501
502
503

        call_stack__:  A stack of all parsers that have been called. This
                is required for recording the parser history (for debugging)
                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
504
505
                recording is turned off! (See :func:`add_parser_guard` and its local
                function :func:`guarded_call`)
506
507
508
509

        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
510
511
                if full memoization is enabled. (See :func:`add_parser_guard` and its
                local function :func:`guarded_call`)

        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.
