Good job! Thanks for posting this. Standard LR parsing is something
I've struggled to understand for years, on and off. (Don't get me
wrong. I think I understand the basics but I keep wanting to do it
differently. But that's another topic.)

I think it's a great idea to use gobbet-sized info in flash cards and
I like the fact that you dispensed with a long introduction and got
straight into the subject. More documents should be written this way.
