Description

Monads are used in Haskell to support error handling and a concept of global state such as input/output. Parsing is a killer application for monads. This paper discusses a parser generator implementation for Java and JavaScript and shows how to benefit greatly from object-oriented design patterns based on monads adapted from functional programming. All examples discussed here are available for online use through the links at the end of the paper.
