You know thats wrong.

Uhm, no, examples are good, but one needs some information how the
grammar's syntax is and how semantic actions can be written. Yes I can
learn the most basic things from the example's, but some things are just
strange and I don't have the time for example to dive into how I have to
write FooParser subclass for $table. Unless there's some documentation
for it. I need documentation for somebody who doesn't come from a
language-parser world, somebody that just wants to write some rules and
semantic actions to build an AST from a text.


You attempt things that you do not even plan because of your extreme stupidity.
