Of course it does. I need a parser that can decipher the pure randomness
of my own code. Basically, I'd like to run an SHA-512 algorithm against a
poorly-typed text file describing my program. Then, I'd just compile the
message digest.

Of course, most of my current code has one big block, main(), and I just
cut-and-paste the rest.
