Abstract

At the beginning of the compilation process, the source code of a program is nothing else but a stream of characters. Thus, the task of the lexical analysis is to recognize symbols in this stream of characters and to provide these symbols in a more useful representation for syntax analysis. This process is shown in Figure 3.1.
