Information about parsing methods can be found in books about compiler

construction. I don't know which books are currently considered to be the

best. When I learned about this some years ago, I liked "Crafting A

Compiler" by Fisher/LeBlanc (Benjamin/Cummings) most. Many people consider

the dragon book by Aho et al. to be the standard, but unless there was a

thorougly revised version recently I wouldn't recommend it that much, looked

quite outdated.

If you prefer a less heavy-weight book, the one by Wirth isn't bad

either.
