    Probably! A parser's definitely the better way to go. Regexes are more of a quick-and-dirty route, my specialty.

    Well, it looks like I will have to write my own parsing code, or learn to use and implement regex.

    The available libraries that I've had a look all had spectacularly poor documentation, missing header files, and code that needed to be debugged.

    I would rather go mad trying to do it myself, than go mad trying to make sense of other people's code.

    I pity the people that have to try to make sense of other people's poorly documented, incomplete, buggy code for a living.
