Everything you're talking about, because of your abstraction I can tell you you're loading strings into memory and operating on them in memory. Because of your higher level determining these things it's only operating on the strings after the fact. I am not. Now, for .NET that doesn't matter. For an 8kB arduino it does. Point is, our parsers are fundamentally different in that respect.

Also when you said normalization is for a higher level to determine you misunderstand me. I parse no numbers, no strings, nothing, unless you actually request it. That's what I mean by no normalization. Based on what you're telling me of your architecture you are normalizing unconditionally at the parser level i suspect - am almost certain. I do not parse every field or value i encounter. I skip over most of them. they never get turned into anything in value space.

literally most of the time I'm advancing like this:

C++
while(m_source.currentChar()!='{some context sensitive stopping point value}') { m_source.advance(); /* moves one char */} 

Real programmers use butterflies
