“Flexible Bible Reference Parser”
A tiny Bible reference parser written in C99. It parses references like

2 Kings 1, 3-5:2-4, 3-6, 1-2

and parses it into structures like:

Book: 2Kings
Chapter: [1]-[1]
Chapter: [3]-[5]
Verse: [2]-[4]
Verse: [3]-[6]
Verse: [1]-[2]

Features

  • No dependencies or even standard C headers
  • One C file, one header file, no complex build system needed
  • Tiny and flexible

Cannot Parse:

By design, it cannot parse references like:

  • “John 3 16, John 3 17”
  • “John 3, Hebrews 4”
  • “John 3 16, KJV”

Testing:

cc test.c fbrp.c && ./a.out

How it works:

Like a lexer/parser, it parses the string into a tokens.
Then, it uses that to run through each token and figure out
exactly what they all mean.

There is currently no algorithm specification, but feel free to
ask if you need any clarification.
