Glossary > Parser


A parser in the narrow sense is a program, which executes the syntactical analysis of a text. In a broader sense this word is used in this help to comprise also the lexical analysis and the execution of the actions.


In the TextTransformer several parser take part. The TextTransformer is a parser generator. So


1. the TextTransformer has a parser to parse the scripts and

2. the TextTransformer creates new parser. The created parser either

a) exists in the working memory to transform loaded texts, or

b) exists as a parser class in form of source code
