I was wondering what people consider to be the best compiling(parsing)
approach I am planning to write a small-scale Pascal compiler for the
amiga and have only had experience(limited at that) with recursive descent
parsers for LL(1) grammers. I was wondering how other parsing methods
(LR(1) and table driven parsers) stack up in terms of parsing speed.
[This is as much as anything a religious issue. I suspect that for Pascal,
which is very easy to parse, a hard coded RD parser will probably be the
fastest. But there are other criteria than speed. -John]
