A thought that struck me (and probably struck many of you before me) is that
the event stream from a SAX parser is much like the token stream from a lexical
analyser, like 'lex'. This made me wonder what the equivalent to 'yacc' would
be in this picture; an application that help you construct the logic for dealing
with event streams. Is there such an application? I cannot immediately think
of one. XSLT has some of the features you would expect of such an application,
but because it is designed to be state-free, it isn't the same as a
state-sensitive application like 'yacc'.
Has anyone any suggestions as to which applications may fill this void? Am I
missing something really obvious? Please don't pass on your dislike of
yacc/bison, if any (I prefer JavaCC myself, but that is another story).
