$lexer_name     MyLexer

QUOTE           \"
JS              js
LE              lex
KEY_TO_FIND     {JS}_{LE}
OTHER           [\d\D]

$$

QUOTE  {
    this.yygoto(QUOTE_STATE);
}

<QUOTE_STATE> KEY_TO_FIND {
    console.log("Found '" + this.yytxt + "' in quotes at " + this.yyidx);
    this.q_number++;
    this.total_number++;
}

<QUOTE_STATE>QUOTE {
    this.yygoto(DEFAULT);
}

<QUOTE_STATE> OTHER   {
    // do nothing
}

KEY_TO_FIND     {
    console.log("Found '" + this.yytxt + "' at " + this.yyidx);
    this.total_number++;
}

OTHER   {}

$$
$start       {
    console.log("Finding word 'js_lex' with ignore case option.\n");
}
$construct   {
    this.q_number = 0;
    this.total_number = 0;
}
$finish     {
    console.log("\nDone. Found word 'js_lex' " + this.q_number + " times in quotes and " + this.total_number + " total times!")
}
$unknow     {
    console.warn("unknow char:", String.fromCharCode(this.chr));
}
$unmatch    {
    console.warn("unmath char:", String.fromCharCode(this.chr));
}

2.Use command jslex find_jslex.lex, file find_jslex.js will be created. 3.Use command ./find_jslex.js test_find_jslex.txt. content of test_find_jslex.txt is bellow:

Hello everyone, I'm js_Lex.

"You are js_lex?!"

葛

Yes, I'm js_lex, no one else can be JS_LEX.

4.Final, you can see the output is:

Finding word 'js_lex' with ignore case option.

Found 'js_Lex' at 20
Found 'js_lex' in quotes at 38
unknow char: 葛
Found 'js_lex' at 61
Found 'JS_LEX' at 88

Done. Found word 'js_lex' 1 times in quotes and 4 total times!

Lex Rule

Same as classic Lex. JSLex support some pre-defines like regex:

  • \d digit, 0-9
  • \D not digit
  • \s empty char, include space and \f\n\r\t\v
  • \S not empty char
  • \w word, a-zA-Z_
  • \W not word
  • \a alpha letter, a-zA-Z
  • \A not alpha letter
  • \u upper letter, A-Z
  • \U not upper letter
  • \l lower case letter, a-z
  • \L not lower case letter
  • . any char except \n

JSLex also support combine defined rules. surround it by { and }. For example:

DIGIT   \d
INT     {DIGIT}+
FLOAT   {INT}(\.{INT})?

JSLex support state, so it can generate more than just a lexer. See example above.

Argument

you can specify argument at the begining of lex file. jslex support follow arguments:

  • $case_ignore ignore letter lower or upper case, default is false.
  • $lexer_name lexer_name, default is JSLexer
  • $argument usage $argument key value, store key-value pair for later use.
  • $include_dir jslex support multiple files. we will discuss it later.

Multiple Files

JSLex support deal with multiple files. So you can make your project modularization.

Todo

  • Much more functions.
  • Combine with jison, to make it's lex function more strong.(currently jison only support origin javascript RegExp to deal with lex?)
