I'm new to ANTLR and to the world of lexers/parsers in general.
I read up on the documentation and I have a pretty good feel of what
the lexer does and what the parser does. I have a question though:
Suppose I'm parsing Java source code. What I want to do is distinguish
between white space that is used as indentation and whitespace that is in
between other types of tokens. Indentation should be returned as a special
token type, say INDENT, while other whitespace can be ignored.
Is it possible to do this (even though it might not be very useful)?
Thanks a lot,
