As shown in the example spec, this is the place to put package declarations and import statements. Modern Compiler Implementation in Java: The two main rules of optimization apply also for lexical specifications: The example does not describe the whole lexical structure of Java programs, but only a small and simplified part of it some keywords, some operators, comments and only two kinds of literals. The default value is The matched region of the input is referred to with yytext and appended to the content of the string literal parsed so far.

As of version 1. Moreover, a file written on one platform, say Windows, may later be read by a scanner on another platform, for instance Linux. Which letters are uppercase and which lowercase letters, is defined by the Unicode standard. This will be faster, but can in some cases become quite messy. ISO is undefined there.

Design goals The main design goals of JFlex are: If you don’t have it, you can use rpm –checksig –nopgp jflex This section gives details about JFlex 1.


If you write an A in your text editor and the editor uses the platform’s encoding say A is 65then Java translates this into the logical Unicode A internally. You can fix the problem by telling Java explicitly which encoding to use. Character sets may be nested, e. For scanners the interesting part about platform independence is character encodings and how they are handled. Of course the encoding to use can also come from the data itself: However, each interface has two sides.

Beside package and import statements there is usually not much to do here. It does not work, when a postfix of the regular expression matches a prefix of the trailing context and the length of the text matched by the expression does not have a fixed size. Column counting could also be included in actions.

After determining the active regular expression, the associated action is executed. If a program reads a file from disk, it gets a msnual of bytes. The first part contains user code that is copied verbatim to the beginning of the generated source file before the scanner class declaration.

From this specification JFlex generates a. The default end of file value under this setting is YYEOFwhich is a public static final int member of the generated class.

JFlex declares it in any case. JFlex can easily be integrated with the Ant build tool. You can find it in the src directory of the JFlex manhal.

User code The first part contains user code that is copied verbatim into the beginning of the source file of the generated lexer before the scanner class is declared. Although this allows a grammar-like specification style, macros are still just abbreviations and not non-terminals — they cannot be recursive.

It consists of a set of options, code that is included inside the generated scanner class, lexical states and macro declarations.

Flex offers the character classes directly supported by C, JFlex offers the ones supported by Java. Mqnual arbitrary lookahead also called trailing context the expression is matched only when followed by input that matches the trailing context. It is in time complexity proportional to the size of the expanded DFA table, and it is static, i. If you put the checksum file in the same directory as manuap archive, you run: What is read and what constitutes a character depends on the runtime platform.

Access to the generated class is expected to be mediated by user class code see next switch. JFlex was designed to read old JLex specifications unchanged and to generate a scanner which behaves exactly the same as the one generated by JLex with the only difference of being faster. Next to package and import statements there is usually not much to do here.
