    Parsing technology is concerned with the automatic decomposition of complex structures into their constituent parts, a task that computers were applied to first, in their early days, in relation to the compilation and interpretation of computer programs. Since computer programs have in common with written text that they consist of symbol strings that can be decomposed into meaningful substrings, the idea soon came up to apply the techniques of programming language parsing to natural language expressions.
