This *is* what I was doing. :) I was trying to write the parser in C and 
it was moving extremely slowly. I'm glad I did what I have, though, as 
it's taught me quite a bit.

I've started converting my parser.c file to C++ and so far, wow, C++ is 
way easier to work with. Especially when manipulating strings. I'll be 
committing what I have so far shortly and then work at getting the rest 
of it converted. Any suggestions, ideas, whatever you have are most welcome.
