In 2007, I decided to create a parsing tool based on Earley's algorithm -- like yacc, but more powerful. I called it Marpa. In technical terms, this succeeded beyond my imaginings: Marpa was what people had originally hoped yacc would be.
Marpa was a joy to work on and I had been lucky with Sun stock options, so, for several years, I was glad to self-finance my work on Marpa. Unfortunately, this self-financing can no longer continue -- to the degree that I cannot find support for my Marpa work from the open-source community, I must turn my energies elsewhere.
I will always work on Marpa, to whatever degree I can. Your generous contributions can help. Thank you!

No reward, but if you're using Marpa and getting real benefit from it, or if you want to help make new developments possible, this is a real contribution.

No reward, but at $100, you're a real pillar of the Marpa effort.  Thanks!

At $2500 a month, I will be able to devote full-time to Marpa.
