    Parsing Expression Grammar Template Library

    I personally prefer to use parsing combinator libraries in C++, where the "grammar" is just part of normal C++ and directly integrate. Examples are Boost.Spirit, pegtl, or (my own) lexy.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • lexertl14

    C++14 version of lexertl

  • parsertl14

    C++14 version of parsertl

  • bpr_cpp_lexer_mirror

    Compile time generated lexical analyzers.

    If you like TMP check out my bachelors thesis you might like my lexer. Granted it's 2 years old but works and I think the API is quite nice (compilation times are stupid long though).
