    error codes and objects in return. If <tt>status()</tt> is true, then the
    <tt>object()</tt> returns a pointer to the object built during the parse
    process. If <tt>status()</tt> is false, then the <tt>error()</tt>
    returns a pointer to an Error object.

    Note that the <tt>object()</tt> mfunc returns a void pointer.

    too stderr and a second which takes an additional <tt>parser_arg
