Parsing is one of the easier parts of implementing Racket, having a 
parser alone won't get you very far, and things you might expect to be 
handled in the parser are actually better handled elsewhere.

A good starting point is PLAI: 

Also be aware of the ongoing development of Whalesong, which compiles 
Racket to Web browser JS: http://hashcollision.org/whalesong/
