Most introductory compiler books probably have at least a section on
parsing. The book that my university used for the course that dealt
with parsing was Compiler Construction: Principles and Practice by
Kenneth Louden; chapters 4 and 5 made a rather approachable
introduction to parsing, to me at least. That said, I have too few
data points to adequately assess its relative quality.
Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not
tried it. -- Donald E. Knuth
