Recently I cam across an article called: "GLL Parsing" by Elizabeth
Scott and Adrian Johnstone
( p. 123). I am
wondering if people have experience using this technique.

Somehow this seems to have the advantage of top-down parsing and GLR.

I also came across a recent paper: Yacc is dead by Matthew Might and
David Darais ( ). In their paper they
argue that they find a general Cf grammar parsing method based on
parsing combinators and Brzozowski's derivative. The paper makes this
technique really seem good.

Any comments or experience with it?
