The binary implementations aren't very ready yet, <- but the testing tools will be useful for comparing different parsers for <- now, and they can be designed to allow plugging in binary formats later <- easily (this may come for free if they support multiple implementations <- anyway) <- <- > <- > James <- > <- <- ABS <- <- -- <- Alaric B.
