o What is the purpose of this set of modules?

It's the basis of a long-term project to write a new interface to GEDCOM files.

How are the modules related?

o Genealogy::Gedcom

This is a dummy module at the moment, which just occupies the namespace.

o Genealogy::Gedcom::Reader

This employs the lexer to do the work. It may one day use a (non-existent) parser too.

Run scripts/ -help. is currenly a copy of The latter is recommended.

o Genealogy::Gedcom::Reader::Lexer

This does the real work for finding tokens within GEDCOM files.

Run scripts/ -help.

See Genealogy::Gedcom::Reader::Lexer for details.

Why did you choose Hash::FieldHash over Moose?

My policy is to use the light-weight Hash::FieldHash for stand-alone modules and Moose for applications.
