The lispreader library

lispreader is a small library for reading expressions in Lisp syntax. It has originally been written to facilitate simple exchange of structured data between processes but its main purpose is now to provide a framework for reading configuration files. To simplify interpretation of the data read, lispreader also provides functions for simple matching of expressions against patterns.
