# Finish creation of the new EDL parser

Last year's project, titled "Data Buffers/Serialization", led to a complete
rewrite of the EDL (ENIGMA Development Language) parser. As it stands, the
parser can parse most of the EDL language, with some features which are
incomplete marked as "Unimplemented".

  • The project would begin by finishing up the unimplemented features, and adding
    more test cases to the parser tests,
    to try and achieve maximal coverage.
  • The issues mentioned in issue #2316
    would be fixed possibly by implementing a pass which walks the AST to modify
    it as per the issues mentioned.
  • The parser would then be implemented into ENIGMA itself, by replacing calls
    to the old parser with calls to the new one. This would also involve writing
    routines to lower the AST into ENIGMA's data structures.
