    v37 v38  
    88 
    99Goldie is a series of flexible and comprehensive open-source parsing tools, including a D programming language (D v2.x) library called !GoldieLib. It's compatible with [http://www.devincook.com/goldparser/ GOLD Parser Builder] and can be used together with it, but does not require it. In fact, Goldie can be used as a cross-platform, shell-scripting-compatible alternative to GOLD Parser Builder.

    11 == Some of Goldie's benefits: == 
    12 ''(most are thanks to Goldie's compatibility with GOLD Parser Builder)'' 
    13  
    14 '''Grammars are fully-reusable''' 
    15   No need to create a new grammar for every use and every host language. Many grammars are already available. 
    16  
    17 '''Grammar-agnostic engine''' 
    18   One lexer/parser engine can be used for all grammars. 
    19  
    20 '''Engines for nearly any language or platform''' 
    21   A cross-platform D v2.x engine is included via !GoldieLib. Engines for many other platforms are also available. New engines are easy to write. 
    22  
    23 '''Dynamic-Style''' 
    24   Dynamic-style lets you write programs that support user-created grammars. 
    25  
    26 '''Static-Style''' 
    27   Static-style provides compile-time checks and extra type-safety. 
    28  
    29 '''Lexing and parsing''' 
    30   Lexing and parsing are defined in the same file and handled by one unified tool. 
    31  
    32 '''Many tools available''' 
    33   See the Goldie's [http://www.semitwist.com/goldie/Tools/ Tools] page. 
    34  
    35 Goldie is fully-usable and has been tested on both Windows and Linux (it should also work on OSX and any other platform supported by DMD, but has not been tested), although !GoldieLib's API is still subject to change. Goldie is licensed under [source:/trunk/LICENSE.txt The zlib/libpng License].
