MarpaX::ESLIF - ESLIF is Extended ScanLess InterFace
use MarpaX::ESLIF; my $eslif = MarpaX::ESLIF->new(); printf "ESLIF library version: %s\n", $eslif->version;
With a logger, using Log::Any::Adapter::Stderr as an example:
use MarpaX::ESLIF; use Log::Any qw/$log/; use Log::Any::Adapter ('Stderr', log_level => 'trace' ); my $eslif = MarpaX::ESLIF->new($log); printf "ESLIF library version: %s\n", $eslif->version;
This class and its derivatives are thread-safe. Although there can be many ESLIF instances, in practice a single instance is enough, unless you want different logging interfaces. This is why the
new method is implemented as a multiton. Once a MarpaX::ESLIF instance is created, the user should create a MarpaX::ESLIF::Grammar instance to have a working grammar.
The main features of this BNF are:
The number of sub grammars is unlimited.
- Regular expressions
Native support of regular expression using the PCRE2 library (i.e. this is <not> exactly perl regexps, although very closed).
Native support of streaming input.
Beginners might want to look at MarpaX::ESLIF::Introduction.
my $loggerInterface = My::Logger::Interface->new(); my $eslif = MarpaX::ESLIF->new();
Returns an instance of MarpaX::ESLIF, noted
$loggerInterface is an optional parameter that, when its exists, must be an object instance that can do the methods documented in MarpaX::ESLIF::Logger::Interface, or
An example of logging implementation can be a Log::Any adapter.
printf "ESLIF library version: %s\n", $eslif->version;
Returns a string containing the current underlying ESLIF library version.
The perl interface is an all-in-one version of marpaESLIF library, which means that character conversion is using
iconv-like on Windows) instead of ICU, even if the later is available on your system.
ESLIF has a boolean type, perl has not. In order to not reinvent the wheel, the widely JSON's Perl's boolean utilities via JSON::MaybeXS wrapper are used, i.e.:
A true value. You may localize
$MarpaX::ESLIF::truebefore using ESLIF to change it.
A false value. You may localize
$MarpaX::ESLIF::falsebefore using ESLIF to change it.
Returns a true value if
$valueis a boolean. You may localize
MarpaX::ESLIF::is_bool()function before using ESLIF to change it. ESLIF always requires at least that
$valueis an object, object nature then defaults to
ESLIF consider scalars that have only the internal IV flag.
ESLIF consider scalars that have only the internal NV flag.
ESLIF consider scalars that have only the internal PV flag.
