The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Question Parsing.


1) What's the best language to use for parsing?

2) What functions are used for parsing in C++?

3) What functions are used for parsing in C?

4) Please compare parsing functions between C and C++.

Thanks entirely,

Robert Liguori

parsing what? there are as far as i know, no functions specifically designed for parsing in either the c or c++ standard libraries. theres strtok but thats merely a string tokenizer, nothing more. i would look into flex/bison if you want a parser. if thats not good enough then hang around the comp.compilers newsgroup and ask a few questions.

Just use bison or one of its equivalents.
