If you’re a Haskell programmer and haven’t gotten around to using the wonderful Attoparsec library this video will give you a much needed kick in the pants. For those of you who haven’t taken the plunge with Haskell it might be interesting to see how straight forward it is to write high performance parsers with Haskell.

The video also includes a short discussion on the major differences between Parsec and Attoparsec. They have very similar APIs which can make it hard for newcomers to decide which library to use.
