jlex - lexical analyser generator for Java(tm)
JLex takes the language specification in specfile and generates
Java(tm) source code for a lexical analyser corresponding to the
The lexical analyzer source code is placed in a file whose name is the
name of the JLex specification file, with the string ".java" added to
the end. For example, if the JLex specification file is called
foo.lex, the lexical analyzer source code file that JLex produces will
be called foo.lex.java.)
The resulting lexical analyzer source code should be compiled with a
Java compiler. This produces a lexical analyzer class file, which can
then be used in your application. If the default settings have not
been changed, the lexical analyzer class will be called Yylex and the
class files will named Yylex.class and Yytoken.class.
