    Here is a toy language that uses Jevko as syntax that I've been hacking on a bit recently:

    > is doing? It sure looks to me like it's asking whether a symbol (i.e. indivisible atom) ends with an equal sign, which is semantic gibberish.

    There are no symbols or indivisible atoms here.

    What's happening here is parsing. `jevkoToHtml` is a kind of parser-transpiler which operates on a syntax tree, rather than a sequence of characters or tokens.

    The syntax tree is the output of an earlier stage of parsing, done by the Jevko parser.

    So you can think of this as multi-pass parsing, by analogy with multi-pass compilation.

    At the same time as this second pass of parsing is happening, translation to HTML is happening as well.

    Hope this clarifies things!

    Yes, it has the same spirit of S-expressions and shares the lovely square brackets of Rebol. The major difference is that Jevko is whitespace-agnostic: it has no notion of elements separated with whitespace.

    Generally it's a simpler, more low-level thing. It could be used to build a Rebol-like language. You could add whitespace rules on that level.

    A toy example:

    This one does not use whitespace as a separator, allowing spaces in identifiers at the expense of more brackets.
