Our toy XXX (eXperimental XML leXer) is being written (in C) to try out
for smaller parsers for PDAs.
The basic idea is that perhaps the way to make a smaller footprint is to
make a generic lexer that is good enough to handle XML, HTML, DTDs, CSS,
behaviour is parameterized into tables or transitions and callbacks.
Similarly, if we have a generic lexer, it makes sense to also have a
regular-expression validator and a generic uniqueness validator. These
three components together seem to be enough to handle most of what is
Rather than having an XML parser that fits into 23K, what about an
that fits into 50K? (Well, I don't know what a good estimate is: perhaps
50K to 10K, depending on how big a generic regex validator is.)
