Or, rather, JFlex has a "[^]" that's equivalent to ".|\n" -- I initially
replaced it with "." in flex specs and it stopped matching tokens with
newlines it 'em. Surprise, surprise.
There was a braino in my OP, too: the 3rd rule was supposed to be in
<SEMI>, not <INITIAL>.
Double d = new Double(2.0);
d = new Double(d.doubleValue() * d.doubleValue());
I regard Double variables as mutable, considering this one started as 2.0 and
ended up as 4.0. -- Brendan Guild
