The Parser Class

The Parser class provides support for rudimentary parsing of textual input in stanza format. With respect to the implementation, this class is used to parse an input stream which represents a circuit description and then build a runtime component object based upon this input stream. The input stream itself is typically sent by a graphical user interface to the simulator engine. As each stanza of the input stream is read and parsed, the wires, ports and components which comprise the runtime component are constructed and connected together.
