Using a Pratt parser I aim to parse expressions like this x^2+y^2-1, x=1, y=1 and xy, x=2, y=3. Parsing mathematical expressions it's not hard but it already contains some interesting behaviour such as associativity between operators x+y*z is equal to x+(y*z) and not (x+y)*z. For no particular reason I decided to put the variable assignments after the polynomial. The expression x^2+y^2-1, x=1, y=1 is to be interpreted as you would with this pseudo code
