public interface: Lexer [javadoc | source]

All Known Implementing Classes:
    DocCommentScanner, Scanner

The lexical analyzer maps an input stream consisting of ASCII characters and Unicode escapes into a token sequence.

This is NOT part of any supported API. If you write code that depends on this, you do so at your own risk. This code and its internal interfaces are subject to change or deletion without notice.
Method from com.sun.tools.javac.parser.Lexer Summary:
deprecatedFlag,   docComment,   endPos,   errPos,   errPos,   getLineMap,   getRawCharacters,   getRawCharacters,   name,   nextToken,   pos,   prevEndPos,   radix,   resetDeprecatedFlag,   stringVal,   token,   token
Method from com.sun.tools.javac.parser.Lexer Detail:
 public boolean deprecatedFlag()
    Has a @deprecated been encountered in last doc comment? This needs to be reset by client with resetDeprecatedFlag.
 public String docComment()
    Returns the documentation string of the current token.
 public int endPos()
    Return the last character position of the current token.
 public int errPos()
    Return the position where a lexical error occurred;
 public  void errPos(int pos)
    Set the position where a lexical error occurred;
 public LineMap getLineMap()
    Build a map for translating between line numbers and positions in the input.
 public char[] getRawCharacters()
    Returns a copy of the input buffer, up to its inputLength. Unicode escape sequences are not translated.
 public char[] getRawCharacters(int beginIndex,
    int endIndex)
    Returns a copy of a character array subset of the input buffer. The returned array begins at the beginIndex and extends to the character at index endIndex - 1. Thus the length of the substring is endIndex-beginIndex. This behavior is like String.substring(beginIndex, endIndex). Unicode escape sequences are not translated.
 public Name name()
    Return the name of an identifier or token for the current token.
 public  void nextToken()
    Read token.
 public int pos()
    Return the current token's position: a 0-based offset from beginning of the raw input stream (before unicode translation)
 public int prevEndPos()
    Return the last character position of the previous token.
 public int radix()
    Return the radix of a numeric literal token.
 public  void resetDeprecatedFlag()
 public String stringVal()
    The value of a literal token, recorded as a string. For integers, leading 0x and 'l' suffixes are suppressed.
 public Token token()
    Return the current token, set by nextToken().
 public  void token(Token token)
    Sets the current token.
