Known Subclasses:

Token to exactly match a specified string.


   Literal('blah').parseString('blah')  # -> ['blah']
   Literal('blah').parseString('blahfooblah')  # -> ['blah']
   Literal('blah').parseString('bla')  # -> Exception: Expected "blah"

For case-insensitive matching, use :class:`CaselessLiteral`.

For keyword matching (force word break before and after the matched string), use :class:`Keyword` or :class:`CaselessKeyword`.
