    A synonym for map, allowing the grammar to be declared in a concise way.

  11. def as[U](v: ⇒ U): Parser[U]

    Returns a parser that ignores the result of this parser (if it succeeds) and returns the specified result instead.

    Returns a parser that ignores the result of this parser (if it succeeds) and returns the specified result instead.

    Returns a parser that applies a partial function to the result of this parser.

    Returns a parser that applies a partial function to the result of this parser.

    p.collect(f) succeeds if p succeeds and f is defined at the result of p, In that case it returns f applied to the result of p.

    f

    error

    an optional function that takes the same argument as f and produces an error message.

  15. def count: Parser[Int]

    Returns a parser that produces the number of characters consumed by this parser while discarding the original result.

  16. def cursor: Parser[SourceFragment]

    Provides a cursor over the input consumed by this parser while discarding the actual result.

    Provides a cursor over the input consumed by this parser while discarding the actual result. Use withCursor if you also need access to the result.

    This is required for parsers that create AST nodes that need to be resolved in a rewrite step and need to report the source location in case of failure. It is also required when passing a result of a first-pass parser to a recursive parser to preserve line positions.

    Returns a parser that applies a function to the result of this parser producing an Either where Left is interpreted as failure. It is an alternative to ^? for scenarios where the conditional check cannot be easily performed in a pattern match.

    p.evalMap(f) succeeds if p succeeds and f returns a Right when applied to the result of p.

    Handle any error, potentially recovering from it, by mapping it to a new parser that will be applied at the same starting position than the failing parser.

    This is similar to the orElse or | method, but allows the alternative parser to inspect the error of the preceding one.

    recoverWith to recover from only certain errors.

  30. def orElse[U >: T](p0: ⇒ Parser[U]): Parser[U]

    Applies the specified parser when this parser fails.

    Applies the specified parser when this parser fails.

    a orElse b succeeds if either of the parsers succeeds.

    In case both parsers fail, the Failure instance will be from the parser with the most successfully read characters. In the case of multiple failures having the same number of characters, the one with the highest precedence (this parser) will be chosen.

    Implementation note: The parameter is by-name to allow the definition of recursive parsers. In contrast to the former SDK parser combinators this is the only place where a parser with a by-name parameter is used whereas in all other places the additional cost is avoided.

  31. def parse(in: String): Parsed[T]

    Parses the specified string and returns the result.

  32. def recoverWith[U >: T](pf: PartialFunction[Failure, Parser[U]]): Parser[U]

    Handle certain errors, potentially recovering from it, by mapping them to a new parser that will be applied at the same starting position than the failing parser.

    Handle certain errors, potentially recovering from it, by mapping them to a new parser that will be applied at the same starting position than the failing parser.

    See also

    handleErrorWith to handle any/all errors.

  33. def rep(separator: String): Repeat[T]

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser with the specified separator string between those invocations.

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser with the specified separator string between those invocations.

    p.rep(sep).min(1) is equivalent to (p ~ (sep ~> p).rep).concat.

    The returned parser offers an API to specify further constraints like min or max.

  34. def rep(separator: Parser[Unit]): Repeat[T]

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser with the specified separator parser between those invocations.

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser with the specified separator parser between those invocations.

    p.rep(sep).min(1) is equivalent to (p ~ (sep ~> p).rep).concat.

    The returned parser offers an API to specify further constraints like min or max.

  35. def rep: Repeat[T]

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser.

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser. The returned parser offers an API to specify further constraints like min or max.

  36. def repUntil[U](endCondition: Parser[U]): Parser[(List[T], Option[U])]

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser until either this parser fails or the specified end condition is met.

    Returns a parser that repeatedly applies this parser until either this parser fails or the specified end condition is met. The end condition will be applied after each successful invocation of this parser.

    The result of the returned parser is a tuple consisting of the list containing the result of the invocations of this parser plus the result of the end condition. The latter is returned as an Option as it might be empty when the parsing finished because of this parser failing.

    Note that it is more convenient to include the end condition in the repeating parser itself and use the simpler rep method. This combinator is an alternative if you need to know the result of the end condition.

  37. def repWith[U >: T](next: (U) ⇒ Parser[U]): Parser[List[U]]

    Returns a parser that invokes the specified function repeatedly, passing the result of this parser if it succeeds, to produce new parsers that get applied until one of them fails.

    Returns a parser that invokes the specified function repeatedly, passing the result of this parser if it succeeds, to produce new parsers that get applied until one of them fails.

    The result of the returned parser is a list containing the result of this parser (if it succeeds) plus the results of successful invocations of the parsers returned by the specified function.

  38. def source: Parser[String]

    Retrieves the part of the input consumed by this parser while discarding the result.

    Retrieves the part of the input consumed by this parser while discarding the result.

    This is useful in scenarios where many string-based parsers are combined and produce a deeply nested result like String ~ Option[String] ~ List[String] where it would require some boilerplate to concatenate the results. Using the source method, the entire text consumed by this combination of parsers will be returned.

    If you also need the position within the input or need to pass the result to a recursive parser manually, use the cursor method instead.

    Provides the result of this parser together with a cursor over the input, capturing the consumed source string and its position within the root input. Use cursor if you do not need access to the actual result.

    This is required for parsers that create AST nodes that need to be resolved in a rewrite step and need to report the source location in case of failure. It is also required when passing a result of a first-pass parser to a recursive parser to preserve line positions.

    Applies the specified parser to the input left over by this parser and combines the two results.

    Applies the specified parser to the input left over by this parser and combines the two results.
