Parser (sometimes called a scanner) is an object of Soluling that can read and write a specific file format. They are used in several situations, such as when reading original files and databases, when writing localized files and databases, when importing translations, and when reading glossaries. Some other localization tools might call parsers as scanners. Anyway, parsers and scanners are the same things. There are one or more parsers for each file and database formats that Soluling supports. Soluling's parsers are all statically linked into the executable file (Soluling.exe or SoluMake.exe). Whenever we implement a new parser, we will also compile new executables. To take a new parser in use, just run the automatic update that will download the new executables and replaces the current ones.
