    I will be happy to write a complete parser for superscript
    with pegjs if you wish ?
    i did go quite far in just a day :)

    @silentrob
    I would love to figure out a way to remove the regular expressions from the actually matching logic.. as is, it is quite slow.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    I have already covered alternates , optionals etc
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Ya, I saw that!
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    I was not sure you wanted that.. which is why I stopped
    if you say yes I will do the whole thing
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Let me play with that you have and get a feel for the syntax and lets see how well everything plays together
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    sure
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Im not fussed on PEG or Jison btw.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    well - do you know GSS ?
    grid style sheets
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    I would really like to implement a full CCG for the internal message at some point too.
    I have looked at it, and cassaway.js more specifically
    I wanted to use the constraint solver to do sentence planning.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    yeah .. GSS uses pegjs .. you already know coffeescript uses jison
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    yep.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    hmm you mean something like parsec.. that would be interesting too
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    wow :)
    dint know about that one
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    So there are two, that one and one from the WWU team
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    looks like you have some really interesting ideas for superscript
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Here is the other one, http://yoavartzi.com/
    They both kinda to the same thing..
    use CCG's and lamda calculas to parse english down to something the system can understand.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    so is your plan to port one of them ?
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Maybe down the road.
    BRB

    @ganarajpr
    sure
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Ya. I would like to add a little more smarts and NLU to the system.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    do you have a background in natural language processing ?
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    Not formal.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    self taught ?
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    but than, I don't have a formal CS background either :)
    Yep.
    Ganaraj P R
    @ganarajpr
    cool :)
    btw I just figured from that article that
    you have deprecated writing .ss files ?
    am I reading that right ?
    so everything goes through the editor
    the web editor I mean
    Rob Ellis
    @silentrob
    umm.. Im not sure
    I think that was the plan at first..
    There is really 2 separate authoring experiences right now, and they are both different, and have their own tradeoffs.
    my beef with the scripting interface is how long it takes to compile and test...
    So the web editor is instant.

    @ganarajpr
    agreed
