Could you please learn some parser theory 101 and then come back when
you have complaints about one or the other implemententation of a
particular Python parser? When some guy enters a forum with a "newbie
question" most of the time people are willing to give a fair and
comprehensive answer but they don't want to mess around with him
endlessly when he is not willing to learn and to listen.
