Parsing, also known as syntactic analysis, is traditionally used for programming languages and natural languages, but is also a powerful patttern matching technique. This book offers a thorough discussion of many different parsing techniques with their interrelations and applicabilities, including error recovery techniques. The book also features an extensive, annotated bibliography. No advanced mathematical knowledge is required, and the authors emphasize the intuitive and engineering-like understanding of the processes involved in parsing, rather than the set manipulations used in practice. The book is intended for all those who use a computer to recover non-apparent structure in linearized data, including computer scientists, linguists, geologists and musicologists amongst others.
