    Hi Swedebugia,

    I did not notice a PEG parser has been added. How did you notice this?
    Maybe there is another blog for new additions to Guile?

    Do you know a good text, which explains differences between the
    different approaches to parsing? For example, what is the difference
    between PEG parsing and parser combinators? There seems to be a whole
    jungle of approaches to parsing out there, including parser generators,
    which I believe take a grammar of certain kind and produce a parser from
    that. I am never sure what languages I can parse using what approach.

    Thanks anyways!

I heard about the PEG addition from Ricardo who mentioned it in
guix-devel. It also is one of very few features who got a nice tutorial
in the guile manual which I read a lot in.

Unfortunately I don't know a good comparison, but I believe PEG is somewhat
superior to guile-parser-combinators.
