Built from template.html recursive descent parser from FOLDOC foldoc.org: wombat.doc.ic.ac.uk & foldoc.doc.ic.ac.uk:

recursive descent parser

<grammar>

A "top-down" parser built from a set of mutually-recursive procedures or a non-recursive equivalent where each such procedure usually implements one of the productions of the grammar. Thus the structure of the resulting program closely mirrors that of the grammar it recognises.
