Within the bismon program (a GPLv3+ software for Linux funded by H2020 research projects, whose draft documentation is here; the application domain of
bismon is static source code analysis of C and C++ programs using generated GCC plugins) I want to parse some DSL of my own invention (philosophically a successor of my obsolete GCC MELT, which was some Lisp dialect). Of course I am allowed to change the syntax of that DSL and its REPL, if that makes my life simpler (the "selling point" being the semantics of that DSL).
Bismon is a collaborative web tool, with a web interface. So it is a specialized HTTP server. Detailed technical explanations are here (and you'll find there detailed motivations and context for this question too)
I am considering sharing an LALR grammar between both (and have the parsing running concurrently in the Web browser and in the
I already have some flexible parsing infrastructure that I could reuse. For example, reparsing the entire expression at each keystroke.... (like my buggy GTK interface already does)
PS. License (legal) compatibility with GPLv3+ is essential.
