ruby_parser version 3.0.0.a1 has been released!

Published 2012-05-22 @ 17:30

ruby_parser (RP) is a ruby parser written in pure ruby (utilizing racc–which does by default use a C extension). RP’s output is the same as ParseTree’s output: s-expressions using ruby’s arrays and base types.

As an example:

def conditional1(arg1) if arg1 == 0 then return 1 end return 0 end


s(:defn, :conditional1, s(:args, :arg1), s(:scope, s(:block, s(:if, s(:call, s(:lvar, :arg1), :==, s(:arglist, s(:lit, 0))), s(:return, s(:lit, 1)), nil), s(:return, s(:lit, 0)))))


3.0.0.a1 / 2012-05-22

This is the first alpha release of the 3.0.0 series. It is probably woefully incomplete, bug ridden, and hasn’t showered in several days. Please please please beat the crap out of it and send bugs/patches/complaints/suggestions.
