Inform 6 parser spec

I guess it’s the inform 7 parser as well, actually, but anyway.

I think I remember somewhere long ago seeing a detailed explaination of how the Inform library’s in-game command parser worked. I’m about to start work on a project that involves natural language processing, and something similar to the Inform parser would actually be perfect for the application. It’d be nice, therefore, to have some prior art to work off of.

Anyone remember seeing anything like that?

You mean the chapters on the parser in the DM4 ?
Otherwise, there’s the source available nowadays, but that may be too detailed…
