Both your answers helped me. I re-wrote my BNF a few times, learning more
at each step, and making less and less mistakes. My next step is to learn
to process the result tree.
Is SimpleParse going to be around for a while? I mean, the mailing list
suggest there are only very few users. I wonder if I should switch to
> section := builddecl,!, elementdecl,elementdecl*
This has changed quite a bit in my re-writing, but at least I understand
why it was wrong.

Actually, my infinite loop was because I had (ts/section)* rather than
Thanks a lot!

SimpleParse is going to be around for a long while. I only work on it
when I get time, and particularly, when there are user requests for
features/bugs or I find something I myself need, but I consider it a
core part of my toolbox, so I'm not likely to let it die off.
Re size: I'd guess there's around 20 direct users at the moment, but
there's considerably more secondary users (e.g. every OpenGLContext
user tends to be one, as does every mcf.vrml user, and there are other
projects using it as well). Basically, it's a developer's tool with a
very specialised functionality not an end-user's tool, so it's user
count is never going to be too high (do note that some users never post
to the list as well). That said, it's just been covered in Text
Processing in Python, so maybe we'll get a huge influx now :) .
