This is what I see under OS X. In one shell, I compile  and run parser.rkt 

Eris:Dysnomia gregwoodhouse$ raco exe -o parser parser.rkt
Eris:Dysnomia gregwoodhouse$ ./parser

then, in another shell I  get

Eris:~ gregwoodhouse$ ps
  PID TTY           TIME CMD
  995 ttys000    0:00.15 -bash
 1080 ttys000    0:00.90 ./parser
 1047 ttys001    0:00.02 -bash
Eris:~ gregwoodhouse$
