Anchors Overview

Anchors Overview

Anchors are the components that let a Parser hook into specific locations in a source document, for the purpose of finding data and storing it in data holders. An anchor is a signpost that you place in a document, indicating the position of the data.
This chapter explains the different types of anchors and how you can use them in Parsers.
