The libraries you mention are useful if you want to create a parser yourself to parse some language defined by a formal grammar, such as a programming language, into a representation that a computer can work with. This is one of the things that a compiler does. If you want to study how compilers work, then lexical analysis and parsing is one of the subjects you'll want to study.

There are lots of books about compiling available. They will be more helpful than studying the tools.
