Do you plan to keep the source closed or would you publish your code? Looking at the code of my Regexp based parser I think it could be better to use a state machine. In the beginning I planned to use one, but I must admit that I failed. My code got a bit complicated and finally I decided just to do it with RegExp. But regular expressions have limitations, so a state machine would definitely be better.
I also have an idea right now: Assuming that the state machine solves all our parsing problems (your implementation seems to be one of the best Creole parsing implementations), and the code is easy understandable: Why not implement it for all Wiki engines? The state machine could be documented in a language independent format (e,g UML). Your C implementation would be the working example implementation. Then it could be reimplemented in Perl Code, Python Code, Java Code and so on. The Creole markup would not only have its grammar, but also its documented way of parsing it. So instead of wasting time as every implementor struggles with its own implementation, everyone could work on the same parser. The more I think about it, the more I like this.
Of course you don't have to publish your code, if you don't want to. But even in this case we should focus on building the __one__ Creole parser that works, is documented and can be implemented for all Wiki engines with reasoable effort. I'm not sure whether this approach works as good as I currently "dream" about it, but I had this idea right now and wanted to publish it.
