Does Python use a special home-made parser, or does it use Yacc?

    Or some other pre-packaged parser tool?

    None of them: it's not YACC, not a pre-packaged parser tool, and not
    a home-made parser. Instead, it uses pgen, a parser tool that is
    included in the Python distribution (whether *that* was made at
    home or at work, I don't know :).
