in addition to the previous mail, t.txt is:


the code is in util-prs.lua (where all kind of parsing code lives)

if you want to use that kind of code outside context you can do 
something like this:

lua mtxlibs.lua --selfmerge foo.lua

and then in your script load foo.lua

this makes it possible to use the same set of helpers in context as well 
outside it (alternatively you can just use luatex as lua engine and 
mtxrun as script runner which is what we mostly do); this means that the 
context distribution provides all kind of means to set up workflows
