Headline

A program that accepts input according to some formal definition

Details

For instance, we may implement a context-free grammar for parsing, e.g., as a recursive descent parser without adding any semantic actions, though, and thereby obtain an acceptor for the language generated by the grammar. The acceptor behaves essentially as a predicate on given input: accept (true) or reject (false).

Illustration

See Technology:Parsec for (the illustration of) a combinator library for parsing (or "accepting").

See Contribution:haskellAcceptor for a contribution with a Language:Haskell-based acceptor.

Relationship

  • An acceptor is "degenerated" parser. (No parse trees are synthesized.)
