Spirit is a set of C++ libraries for parsing and output generation implemented as Domain Specific Embedded Languages (DSEL) using Expression templates and Template Meta-Programming. The Spirit libraries enable a target grammar to be written exclusively in C++. Inline grammar specifications can mix freely with other C++ code and, thanks to the generative power of C++ templates, are immediately executable.
Spirit.X3 (3rd generation)
The newest Spirit shines faster compile times. Currently only a parser framework.
WARNING: C++14 compilers support will be dropped soon.
Spirit X3 in Boost 1.81 (scheduled to November 2022) will use C++17 features.
Supported compilers will be:
- Clang 4 (currently 3.6)
- GCC 7 (currently 5)
- VS 2017 v15.8 (currently 2015 U3)
Spirit V2 (2nd generation)
The latest Long Term Support version of Spirit. A Swiss Army knife for data manipulation on any kind of input.
Runs on most C++03 compilers (GCC 4.1, Clang 3.0, VS 2005).
Spirit.Classic (1st generation)
An elderling member of Spirit. It receives only limited maintanance, but it is still used even inside Boost by Boost.Serialization and Boost.Wave libraries. It also contains Phoenix V1.
Spririt.Classic should support even ancient compilers.
