Building Parsers with Java
By Steven  John  Metsker

Table of Contents
Chapter  9.   Advanced Tokenizing


Tokenizing text lets you simplify grammars so that they define patterns of tokens instead of patterns of individual characters . A tokenizer must have a default state along with a set of other states to enter, depending on the next character to consume. Once entered, a tokenizing state needs to arrange to consume and return one token, although it can delegate this task to another state. You can customize which state a tokenizer enters given an initial character, and you can customize how a state builds a token. You can also create your own tokenizing states, so you have a great deal of freedom in customizing a tokenizer to meet the needs of your language.
