//  This example demonstrates usage of the parser_context template with
//  an explicit argument to declare rules with match results different from
//  nil_t. For better understanding, you should read the chapter "In-depth:
//  The Parser Context" in the documentation.
//  The default context of non-terminals is the parser_context.
//  The parser_context is a template with one argument AttrT, which is the type
//  of match attribute.
//  In this example int_rule is declared as rule with int match attribute's
//  type, so in int_rule variable we can hold any parser, which returns int
//  value. For example int_p or bin_p. And the most important is that we can
//  use returned value in the semantic action binded to the int_rule.
