A blurry, excellent existence. I've mentioned that I started working on a YAML parser and emitter for Ruby. Yaml4r. Well, it finally works. It handles the basics. Well, except for headerless files and multiple documents. Many thanks to the Yaml-core list. Just reading helped alot. I sure appreciate Yacc. And the Ruby incarnation, Racc. I can't bear parsing characters or using all regexps for larger works and such. Whereas writing the YAML parser was such a pain before, writing grammars was a lot less grunt work with Racc. We just got a new coder here at work. Very cool guy. I mean what can I say: he brought in nacho cheese. Bottoms uP! No, seriously. It's such a relief to have nacho cheese around.
