I am using
java8/extendj.jar built from
ExtendJ 8.1.2-15-gd4d25af Java SE 8).
When tokenizing code that contains Unicode escapes using
nextToken() method throws an exception with the message
illegal escape sequence "\u".
I had a brief look at the grammar definition and I don't see Unicode escapes in there.
Find attached an example project containing a test class that triggers the exception. Just execute
As in the passing test cases I would expect JavaScanner to produce a token whose value is a String containing the Unicode escape sequence.
