Fair enough. I guess one could use Coco/R or other similar tools to
generate parsers for other things too, like LaTeX for one. I worked on
a table based parser for LaTeX, but my desired IPF output was not
exactly what I wanted, so I put the project on hold for now.
Maybe something like Coco/R could get me going on that project again.

I'm sure he can, I was just curious though.
