This paper presents a new method that conveniently incorporates the evaluation of semantic actions in table-driven top-down parsers. The method is called hybrid because it is a powerful combination of table-driven syntax analysis proper and the handling of semantic evaluation as implemented in standard recursive descent parsers. The most notable fact of this new technique is, that it provides the benefits of both conventional top-down parsing methods while avoiding their drawbacks. The hybrid method has been used for the implementation of the new compiler generator Coco-2 and for its generated parsers and it proved to meet the claimed expectations.
