DESCRIPTION:

ruby_parser (RP) is a ruby parser written in pure ruby (utilizing racc–which does by default use a C extension). It outputs s-expressions which can be manipulated and converted back to ruby via the ruby2ruby gem.

As an example:

def conditional1 arg1
  return 1 if arg1 == 0
  return 0
end

becomes:

s(:defn, :conditional1, s(:args, :arg1),
  s(:if,
    s(:call, s(:lvar, :arg1), :==, s(:lit, 0)),
    s(:return, s(:lit, 1)),
    nil),
  s(:return, s(:lit, 0)))

Tested against 801,039 files from the latest of all rubygems (as of 2013-05):

  • 1.8 parser is at 99.9739% accuracy, 3.651 sigma

  • 1.9 parser is at 99.9940% accuracy, 4.013 sigma

  • 2.0 parser is at 99.9939% accuracy, 4.008 sigma

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Pure ruby, no compiles.

  • Includes preceding comment data for defn/defs/class/module nodes!

  • Incredibly simple interface.

  • Output is 100% equivalent to ParseTree.

    • Can utilize PT's SexpProcessor and UnifiedRuby for language processing.

  • Known Issue: Speed is now pretty good, but can always improve:

    • RP parses a corpus of 3702 files in 125s (avg 108 Kb/s)

    • MRI+PT parsed the same in 67.38s (avg 200.89 Kb/s)

  • Known Issue: Code is much better, but still has a long way to go.

  • Known Issue: Totally awesome.

  • Known Issue: line number values can be slightly off. Parsing LR sucks.

SYNOPSIS:

RubyParser.new.parse "1+1"
# => s(:call, s(:lit, 1), :+, s(:lit, 1))

You can also use Ruby19Parser, Ruby18Parser, or RubyParser.for_current_ruby:

RubyParser.for_current_ruby.parse "1+1"
# => s(:call, s(:lit, 1), :+, s(:lit, 1))

DEVELOPER NOTES:

To add a new version:

  • New parser should be generated from lib/ruby_parser.yy.

  • Extend lib/ruby_parser.yy with new class name.

  • Add new version number to V2 in Rakefile for rule creation.

  • Require generated parser in lib/ruby_parser.rb.

  • Add empty TestRubyParserShared##Plus module and TestRubyParserV## to test/test_ruby_parser.rb.

  • Extend Manifest.txt with generated file names.

  • Extend sexp_processor's pt_testcase.rb to match version

    • add_19tests needs to have the version added

    • VER_RE needs to have the regexp expanded

Until all of these are done, you won't have a clean test run.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • ruby. woot.

  • sexp_processor for Sexp and SexpProcessor classes, and testing.

  • racc full package for parser development (compiling .y to .rb).

INSTALL:

  • sudo gem install ruby_parser
