Scott Wlaschin - Understanding parser combinators

Traditionally, writing parsers has been hard, involving arcane tools like Lex and Yacc. An alternative approach is to write a parser in your favourite programming language, using a `parser combinator` library and concepts no more complicated than regular expressions.
