class StdLexical

[source: scala/util/parsing/combinator/lexical/StdLexical.scala]

class StdLexical
extends Lexical with StdTokens

This component provides a standard lexical parser for a simple, Scala-like language. It parses keywords and identifiers, numeric literals (integers), strings, and delimiters.

To distinguish between identifiers and keywords, it uses a set of reserved identifiers: every string contained in `reserved' is returned as a keyword token. (Note that "=>" is hard-coded as a keyword.) Additionally, the kinds of delimiters can be specified by the `delimiters' set.

Usually this component is used to break character-based input into bigger tokens, which are then passed to a token-parser {@see TokenParsers}.
