.SH NAME
jlex \- lexical analyser generator for Java(tm)
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B jlex
.I specfile
.SH DESCRIPTION
JLex
takes the language specification in
.I specfile
and generates Java(tm) source code for a lexical analyser corresponding
to the specification.
.PP
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
.IR foo.lex ,
the lexical analyzer
source code file that JLex produces will be called
.IR foo.lex.java .)
.PP
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.
