Ergo.Meta.around

You're seeing just the function around, go back to Ergo.Meta module for more information.
Link to this function

around(parser, opts \\ [])

The around parser is a pass-thru parser that can be used to run code before or after another parser. For example to inspect the context or output additional debugging information.

Specify on of around(parser, before: fn ctx -> … end) around(parser, after: fn ctx, parsed_ctx -> … end) around(parser, before: fn ctx -> … end, after: fn ctx, parsed_ctx -> … end)

Note that where both before: and after: are specified, the after function will receive both the context before and after parsing as separate parameters.

If neither of before: nor around: are specified an error will be raised.

Examples

iex> alias Ergo.{Context, Parser}
iex> import Ergo.Meta
iex> null_parser = Parser.new(:null_parser, fn %Context{} = ctx -> ctx end)
iex> assert_raise(RuntimeError, fn -> Ergo.parse(around(null_parser), "") end)

iex> alias Ergo.{Context, Parser}

iex> Ergo.parse(parser, "")
iex> assert_receive :before
