I've wondered if there are any other* parser generators out there that can
profile at the production level.

* I say "other" because Meta-S does this.
[I think I've seen a profiling version of yacc, but it was a long time
ago. Unless a compiler does a great deal of analysis and
optimization, the lexer is usually the part of the program that eats
up the most time. I don't ever recall a parser that took much of the
overall runtime. -John]
