Python Lex-Yacc

PLY is a straightforward lex/yacc implementation. Here is a list of its essential features: * It is implemented entirely in Python. * It uses LR-parsing which is reasonably efficient and well suited for larger grammars. * PLY provides most of the standard lex/yacc features including support for empty productions, precedence rules, error recovery, and support for ambiguous grammars. * PLY is straightforward to use and provides very extensive error checking. * PLY doesn't try to do anything more or less than provide the basic lex/yacc functionality. In other words, it's not a large parsing framework or a component of some larger system.
Package version:2.3

Inspired by a September 14, 2006 Salon article "Why Johnny Can't Code" by
David Brin (,
I thought that a fully working BASIC interpreter might be an interesting,
if not questionable, PLY example.  Uh, okay, so maybe it's just a bad idea,
but in any case, here it is.

In this example, you'll find a rough implementation of 1964 Dartmouth 


This example is Andrew Dalke's GardenSnake language. It shows how to process an
indentation-like language like Python.   Further details can be found here:


Simple examples:

   classcalc  - Simple calculate defined as a cla


This example is incomplete.  Was going to specify an ANSI C parser.
This is part of it.

To run:

  - First run 'python'

This example implements a program that converts a UNIX-yacc
specification file into
