  /**
   * @constructor Parser
   * Parser contains methods to evaluate or parse expressions, and has a number
   * of convenience methods to get, set, and remove variables from memory. Parser
   * keeps a scope containing variables in memory, which is used for all
   * evaluations.
   *
   * Methods:
   *    var result = parser.eval(expr);    // evaluate an expression
   *    var value = parser.get(name);      // retrieve a variable from the parser
   *    parser.set(name, value);           // set a variable in the parser
   *    parser.remove(name);               // clear a variable from the
   *                                       // parsers scope
   *    parser.clear();                    // clear the parsers scope
   *
   * Example usage:
   *    var parser = new Parser();
   *    // Note: there is a convenience method which can be used instead:
   *    // var parser = new math.parser();
   *
   *    // evaluate expressions
   *    parser.eval('sqrt(3^2 + 4^2)');         // 5
   *    parser.eval('sqrt(-4)');                // 2i
   *    parser.eval('2 inch in cm');            // 5.08 cm
   *    parser.eval('cos(45 deg)');             // 0.7071067811865476
   *
   *    // define variables and functions
   *    parser.eval('x = 7 / 2');               // 3.5
   *    parser.eval('x + 3');                   // 6.5
   *    parser.eval('function f(x, y) = x^y');  // f(x, y)
   *    parser.eval('f(2, 3)');                 // 8
   *
   *    // get and set variables and functions
   *    var x = parser.get('x');                // 7
   *    var f = parser.get('f');                // function
   *    var g = f(3, 2);                        // 9
   *    parser.set('h', 500);
   *    var i = parser.eval('h / 2');           // 250
   *    parser.set('hello', function (name) {
   *        return 'hello, ' + name + '!';
   *    });
   *    parser.eval('hello("user")');           // "hello, user!"
   *
   *    // clear defined functions and variables
   *    parser.clear();
