== DESCRIPTION:

sexp_processor branches from ParseTree bringing all the generic sexp
processing tools with it. Sexp, SexpProcessor, Environment, etc... all
for your language processing pleasure.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Includes SexpProcessor and CompositeSexpProcessor.

  * Allows you to write very clean filters.

* Includes MethodBasedSexpProcessor

  * Makes writing language processors even easier!

* Sexp provides a simple and clean interface to creating and manipulating ASTs.

  * Includes new pattern matching system.

== SYNOPSIS:

You can use SexpProcessor to do all kinds of language processing. Here
is a simple example of a simple documentation printer:

  class ArrrDoc < MethodBasedSexpProcessor
    def process_class exp
      super do
        puts "#{self.klass_name}: #{exp.comments}"
      end
    end

    def process_defn exp
      super do
        args, *_body = exp

        puts "#{self.method_name}(#{process_args args}): #{exp.comments}"
      end
    end
  end

Sexp provides a lot of power with the new pattern matching system.
Here is an example that parses all the test files using RubyParser and
then quickly finds all the test methods and prints their names:

  >> require "ruby_parser";
  >> rp = RubyParser.new;
  >> matcher = Sexp::Matcher.parse "(defn [m /^test_/] ___)"
  => q(:defn, m(/^test_/), ___)
  >> paths = Dir["test/**/*.rb"];
  >> sexps = s(:block, *paths.map { |path| rp.process File.read(path), path });
  >> (sexps / matcher).size
  => 189
  ?> (sexps / matcher).map { |(_, name, *_rest)| name }.sort
  => [:test_all, :test_amp, :test_and_satisfy_eh, :test_any_search, ...]
