DESCRIPTION:

sexp_processor branches from ParseTree bringing all the generic sexp processing tools with it. Sexp, SexpProcessor, Environment, etc… all for your language processing pleasure.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

Includes SexpProcessor and CompositeSexpProcessor.

  Allows you to write very clean filters.

Includes MethodBasedSexpProcessor

  Makes writing language processors even easier!

Sexp provides a simple and clean interface to creating and manipulating ASTs.

  Includes new pattern matching system.

SYNOPSIS:

You can use SexpProcessor to do all kinds of language processing. Here is a simple example of a simple documentation printer:

class ArrrDoc < MethodBasedSexpProcessor
  def process_class exp
    super do
      puts "#{self.klass_name}: #{exp.comments}"
    end
  end

  def process_defn exp
    super do
      args, *_body = exp

      puts "#{self.method_name}(#{process_args args}): #{exp.comments}"
    end
  end
end

Sexp provides a lot of power with the new pattern matching system. Here is an example that parses all the test files using RubyParser and then quickly finds all the test methods and prints their names:

>> require "ruby_parser";
>> rp = RubyParser.new;
>> matcher = Sexp::Matcher.parse "(defn [m /^test_/] ___)"
=> q(:defn, m(/^test_/), ___)
>> paths = Dir["test   /*.rb"];
>> sexps = s(:block, *paths.map { |path| rp.process File.read(path), path });
>> (sexps / matcher).size
=> 189
?> (sexps / matcher).map { |(_, name, *_rest)| name }.sort
=> [:test_all, :test_amp, :test_and_satisfy_eh, :test_any_search, ...]
