Description: 
        THIS PROJECT IS NO LONGER DEVELOPED.  PLEASE SEE THE `SITE
        <http://www.acooke.org/lepl>` FOR MORE INFORMATION.
        
        LEPL is a recursive descent parser, written in Python, which has a a friendly,
        easy-to-use syntax.  The underlying implementation includes
        several features that make it more powerful than might be expected.
        
        For example, it is not limited by the Python stack, because it uses
        trampolining and co-routines.  Multiple parses can be found for ambiguous
        grammars and it can also handle left-recursive grammars.
        
        The aim is a powerful, extensible parser that will also give solid, reliable
        results to first-time users.
        
        `Release 5 <http://www.acooke.org/lepl/lepl5.0.html>`_ has simpler stream
        (input) handling.  Memoisation, line-aware lexing and memory use have also 
        been revised.  These changes make future extension easier, fix several bugs, 
        and improve performance.
        
        Features
        --------
        
        * **Parsers are Python code**, defined in Python itself.  No separate
          grammar is necessary.
        
        * **Friendly syntax** using Python's operators allows grammars
          to be defined in a declarative style close to BNF.
        
        * Integrated, optional **lexer** simplifies handling whitespace.
        
        * Built-in **AST support** with support for iteration, traversal and
          re--writing.
        
        * Generic, pure-Python approach supports parsing a wide variety of data
          including **bytes** (Python 3+ only).
        
        * **Well documented** and easy to extend.
        
        * **Unlimited recursion depth**.  The underlying algorithm is
          recursive descent, which can exhaust the stack for complex grammars
          and large data sets.  LEPL avoids this problem by using Python
          generators as coroutines (aka "trampolining").
        
        * **Parser rewriting**.  The parser can itself be manipulated by
          Python code.  This gives unlimited opportunities for future
          expansion and optimisation.
        
        * Support for ambiguous grammars (**complete backtracking**).  A
          parser can return more than one result (aka **"parse forests"**).
        
        * Parsers can be made more **efficient** with automatic memoisation ("packrat
          parsing").
        
        * Memoisation can detect and control **left-recursive grammars**.  Together
          with LEPL's support for ambiguity this means that "any" grammar can be
          supported.
        
        * Trace and resource management, including **"deepest match" diagnostics** 
          and the ability to limit backtracking.
