Parsing texts > Parser errors


Unfortunately, it isn't so easy to design a "general mail parser". If you try it, you will encounter lots of surprises. E.g. a mail of the following kind:





(English version in the 2nd part of this mail.)




Hallo My_Name,


blah blah blah


Herzliche Grüße


Dein Fettie








With the production above:


mail ::= salutation text greeting


This mail cannot be parsed, because there is another text in front of the salutation. You can adjust the filter for such cases.
