  Parsing Techniques
Parsing a sentence means to compute the structural description (descriptions) of the sentence assigned by a grammar, assuming, of course, that the sentence is well-formed.
Thus in a TAG the real parse of a sentence is the so-called derivation tree, which is a record of how the elementary trees of a TAG are put together by the operations of substitution and adjoining in order to obtain the derived tree whose yield is the string being parsed.
For a CCG the parse of a sentence is the proof tree of the derivation.

 Parsing - Wikipedia
In computer science, parsing is the process of analyzing an input sequence (read from a file or a keyboard, for example) in order to determine its grammatical structure with respect to a given formal grammar.
Parsing transforms input text into a data structure, usually a tree, which is suitable for later processing and which captures the implied hierarchy of the input.
Parsing is also an earlier term for diagraming of sentences in grammar of the English language, and is still used to digram the grammar of inflected languages, such as the Romance languages or Latin.

Parsing involves the procedure of bringing basic morphosyntactic categories into high-level syntactic relationships with one another.
Because automatic parsing (via computer programs) has a lower success rate than part-of-speech annotation, it is often either post-edited by human analysts or carried out by hand (although possibly with the help of parsing software).
The disadvantage of manual parsing, however, is inconsistency, especially where more than one person is parsing or editing the corpus, which can often be the case on large projects.

 Parsing Example
The bottom two animations illustrate what is referred to as bottom-up parse because the construction of the tree begins from the terminal nodes (the words of the sentence) of the tree.
A top-down parse is realized by matching the left side of a rule to an appropriate symbol and then replacing that symbol with the symbols on the right side of the rule.
Although these terms were originally defined by the kind of parsing process illustrated here, they have been used in a broader sense; and, it is perhaps better to refer to a bottom-up process as a postdictive process and a top-down process as a predictive process.

 Morphological Parsing with a Unification-based Word Grammar
Parsing is a standard technique used in the field of natural language processing.
For instance, to parse the sentence The cat chased the rat, a parser must know that cat is a singular noun, chased is a past tense verb, and so on.
When you parse a sentence, it is normally already tokenized into words (since we put white space between words); but when you parse a word, you must first tokenize it into morphemes.

 Glossary of Parsing Terms
In a traditional parsing engine there are four actions: the shift action, the reduce action, the accept action, and the error action.
Normally when you are parsing a file, this is inconsequential because you are not going to continue performing semantic actions in the presence of errors.
As a parse progresses, token values are shifted onto the stack, so that in a reduction procedure, the values of the tokens that comprise the grammar rule that is being reduced are available for inspection.

 Help: Command Parsing
Before it starts, it writes the entire command line (which may contain multiple commands) to the history log file if history logging has been enabled (with the LOG /H command) and the command did not come from a batch file.
During that processing, additional parsing tasks may be triggered as noted and some steps may be repeated multiple times.
When all of the commands in a command line are finished, the next line is read from the current batch file, or if no batch file is active, the prompt is displayed.

 Parsing C++ at nobugs.org
It also uses a 'hack' to help the parsing -- enough semantic information is fed back to the lexer to allow the lexer to classify identifiers as either plain identifiers or typedef names, which makes parsing a bit easier at the expense of tangling the implementation a bit.
For example, C declarations mimic their use ("int *a;" is a declaration and the type of the expression "*a" is int) but this makes it hard for a parser to decide whether a sequence of tokens is a declaration or an expression.
To do this, Willink doesn't actually parse for C++ in the syntax stage, he parses for a somewhat larger language of which C++ is a subset.

 Parsing
In bioinformatics there are open-source packages like Biopython and Bioperl which parse a large number of formats and outputs.
The actual parsing is done with string operations or through regular expressions.
These parse a chunk of text at a time and can be used, for example, in reading from a network connection and displaying partial results as the data comes in.

LL(k) parsing uses all of the left context of the sentence being parsed.
In top-down parsing, this can be in the form of parse tables and a driver, or in the form of a recursive-descent program.

Parallel context-free parsing: using a chart parser, or parallel stacks.
Implement a method to adjudicate between structurally different parses using semantic information on-line – e.g., use the semantic interpreter to rule out certain subtrees as the Earley algorithm tries to build them, much as the way that token lookahead is used, to ‘fix’ examples like “I shot the elephant in my pajamas’.
Build an automatic phrase structure compiler: a system that (i) inputs tree structures that a linguist would build outputs the associated context-free rules to build those trees; and then (ii) given a collection of tree structures, induces a metarule to generate that collection.

 XML.com: Non-Extractive Parsing for XML
One way to look at the "parse once, use many times" property afforded by a non-extractive parsing style is that it can potentially provide a pre-parsed XML that is also backward compatible with XML--in other words, one loses no advantages inherent to XML, e.g.
I wrote my own parse, and mindful of the need to avoid server overheads, came up with the idea of a simple string based XML parser in Javascript, where effectively the XML is retained as a single string, and each "node" you create identifies a start and end point in the string.
The concept of non-extractive parsing is meant to be a general-purpose alternative to extractive parsing; in other words, it is one layer below reg expression and is not tied to any specific language.

 Parsing using linearly ordered phonological rules

 KXML: A Great Find for XML Parsing in J2ME
In the second method, catching parsing events, the parser traverses the XML data and issues callbacks to a previously registered event listener whenever it encounters particular structures in the data.
In push parsing you would have to maintain the state of the current part of the data you were parsing, and based on the events passed to the listener you would have to take care to restore any previous state variables and save new ones when you were changing to a different state.
Pull parsing makes it easier to deal with state changes because you can pass parser to different functions, which can maintain their own state variables.

 Amazon.com: Pro Perl Parsing (Pro): Books: Christopher M. Frenz   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
I liked that this introduced and explained parsing related CPAN modules that I otherwise might have been afraid to touch (CPAN is a great resource, but there's so much there that it intimidates those of us who aren't real Perl experts).
The last chapter is a smorgasbord of light descriptions of modules such as Text::Balanced, which have little or nothing to do with parsing, or with pro, and the chapter on XML processing looks like just a filler with little to add to the rest of the book or to the literature on XML+Perl.
Since there's not many books on Perl parsing, I was excited about it, but I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of depth, accuracy, and the filler-style second half of the book.
