atleast : int -> ('a -> 'b * 'a) -> 'a -> 'b list * 'a

SYNOPSIS
Parses at least a given number of successive items using given parser.

DESCRIPTION
If p is a parser and n an integer, atleast n p is a new parser that attempts to parse at least n successive items using parser p and fails otherwise. Unless n is positive, this is equivalent to many p.

FAILURE CONDITIONS
The call to atleast n p itself never fails.

COMMENTS
This is one of a suite of combinators for manipulating ``parsers''. A parser is simply a function whose OCaml type is some instance of :('a)list -> 'b * ('a)list. The function should take a list of objects of type :'a (e.g. characters or tokens), parse as much of it as possible from left to right, and return a pair consisting of the object derived from parsing (e.g. a term or a special syntax tree) and the list of elements that were not processed.
