NAME

       Parse::or  -  Create  a  new  parser  which  is  the combination of the
       arguments.

SYNOPSIS

       Parser<a> or( Parser<a>  x, Parser<a>  y )

ARGUMENTS

       x The first parser

       y The second parser

DESCRIPTION

       Create a new parser combining x and y
        The new parser recognises a string which is recognised by either x  or
       y.

    decimal = or(Parse::digit,Parse::char@('.'));
    // may be more clear in many situations to write this as
    decimal = Parse::digit `or` Parse::char@('.');

       As  with  Kaya's  || operator, this uses short-circuit evaluation: if x
       parses the String successfully, y will not be used.
