It is desirable that the construction of parsers for programming languages be carried out in a measurable and reproducible way, as has been highlighted in a recent stream of research on “grammar engineering”. We are currently exploiting this approach in the development of a parser for the Python programming language. Our research provides a further case study of grammar engineering, as well as highlighting some specific issues relating to the maintenance of consistency across grammar versions.
