NAME

       Pegex::Grammar - Pegex Grammar Base Class

SYNOPSIS

       Define a Pegex grammar (for the Foo syntax):

           package Pegex::Foo::Grammar;
           use base 'Pegex::Base';
           extends 'Pegex::Grammar';

           has text => q{
           foo: bar baz
           ... rest of Foo grammar ...
           };

       then use it to parse some Foo:

           use Pegex::Parser;
           my $parse_tree = Pegex::Parser->new(
               grammar => 'Pegex::Foo::Grammar',
               receiver => 'Pegex::Tree',
           )->parse('my/file.foo');

DESCRIPTION

       Pegex::Grammar is a base class for defining your own Pegex grammar classes.  You just need
       to provide the grammar view the "text" or the "file" attributes.

       When Pegex::Parser uses your grammar, it will want it in the tree (compiled) form, so
       Pegex::Grammar provides automatic compilation support.

PROPERTIES AND METHODS

       tree
           This is the data structure containing the compiled grammar for your syntax. It is
           usually produced by "Pegex::Compiler". You can inline it in the "tree" method, or else
           the "make_tree" method will be called to produce it.

           The "make_tree" method will call on Pegex::Compiler to compile the "text" property by
           default. You can define your own "make_tree" method to do override this behavior.

           Often times you will want to generate your own Pegex::Grammar subclasses in an
           automated fashion. The Pegex and TestML modules do this to be performant. This also
           allows you to keep your grammar text in a separate file, and often in a separate
           repository, so it can be shared by multiple programming language's module
           implementations.

           See <https://github.com/ingydotnet/pegex-pgx> and
           <https://github.com/ingydotnet/pegex-pm/blob/master/lib/Pegex/Pegex/Grammar.pm>.

       text
           This is simply the text of your grammar, if you define this, you should (probably) not
           define the "tree" property. This grammar text will be automatically compiled when the
           "tree" is required.

       file
           This is the file where your Pegex grammar lives. It is usually used when you are
           making a Pegex module. The path is relative to your top level module directory.

       make_tree
           This method is called when the grammar needs the compiled version.
