lowdown

Lowdown is a pure Chicken Scheme Markdown parser library. It's mostly a port of John MacFarlane's Markdown PEG to comparse parser combinators (not yet documented). Unlike the discount parser (and the original Markdown.pl for that matter) it passes all 22 tests of the MarkdownTest suite (version 1.0.3) and emits SXML rather than a serialized HTML string. This allows for flexible post-processing of the parse result using, for example, sxml-transforms.
