Subject: Another gsoc idea -- ragel
Date: Fri, 9 Mar 2012 20:24:55 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJ+Teoe5zp0D0FFif5+bH2ee6ZcVS2GAb6Qb+9F8sRQXycZFPg@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Ragel http://www.complang.org/ragel/ is a tool that integrates regular
expressions and state machines under one umbrella.
It has backends currently for C, C++, Objective-C, D, Java and Ruby.  I do
not think having an elisp backend would be a very big task.

After that (in my estimate) org-mode code would (could) become half as long
and twice as fast -- at least those sections that are heavily regex oriented
