       jlex - lexical analyser generator for Java(tm)


       jlex specfile


       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

       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.
