A fast regular expression compiler in Common Lisp
Agree to disagree - I don't have the energy to remember operator precedence. One file from the regular expression compiler has most of the rewrite rules I read from the papers, except in S-expression syntax. There were a few bugs due to misreading precedence. Also c.f. Gerald Sussman talking about physics notation being a pain in the butt.
