Meaning of RECURSIVE DESCENT PARSER

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A "top-down" parser built from a set of mutually-recursive procedures or a non-recursive equivalent where each such procedure usually implements one of the productions of the grammar. Thus the structure of the resulting program closely mirrors that of the grammar it recognises.
