Perl has some very helpful features for compiler writing:
- Regular expressions which are powerful enough to
replace or minimize a scanner.
- Useful data structures built in: hash tables and lisp-like
- Easy file io.
But I couldn't find any ready-to-use general parsing toolkits for
perl. And I'm not happy with the quality of perl debuggers.
