First, you donīt even need to use a parser generator if you donīt want to. 
What your parser class has to accomplish is to read the input stream of 
characters and generate the parsed tree on the also supplied rootcontext.

NOTE: Youīll have to code in C# to integrate into mcs, for the time being.

Your parser has to be a subclass of Mono.Languages.GenericParser, and 
implement the two virtual methods extensions() and parse(). If you do so, 
your parser will be automatically called for files ended with the extensions 
you return in the first method, by the driver logic.


namespace Mono.Languages.Python
	using System.Text;
	using System;
	using System.Collections;
	using CIR;
	using Mono.Languages;

	/// <summary>
	///    The Python Parser
	/// </summary>
	public class Parser : GenericParser {

		public override string[] extensions()
			string [] list = { ".py" };
			return list;

		public override int parse ()
		  // Do your code here
	} // end of class Mono.Languages.Python.Parser
} // end of namespace
