API

Fx23StringReader Class (Core Members)

Properties

  • collectLineInfo counts lineIndex and columnIndex during each read operation, default is false.
  • index the index position of current character.
  • columnIndex zero-based column number of current character at current line.
  • lineIndex zero-based line number of current character.
  • visibleIndex the index position of current character without newline characters.
  • length total length of the string.

Methods

  • hasNext returns false if no more character to read.
  • peek returns the next character without moving the internal index.
  • next returns the next character and move the internal index forward.
  • mark marks a flag at current position.
  • collect returns a sub-string from last marked position to current position.
  • nextOverride implementated by subclass.
  • peekOverride implementated by subclass.

Fx23StringReader Class (Extension Members)

These methods are built onto the core members.

Methods

  • collectWhile moves forward while condition is true, and returns the string scanned.
  • skipWhile moves forward while condition is true.
  • moveToContent moves to next non-whitespace character.
  • skipLine moves to next line.
  • collectLine moves to next line and returns current line.
