Hi, the documentation for ANTLR 2.7.5 (Lexical Analysis with ANTLR)
contains the following statement:

Instead, sufficient power is given to handle the two most common cases
of ambiguity, namely "keywords vs. identifiers", and "common
prefixes"; and for especially nasty cases you can use syntactic or
semantic predicates.

Are you implying that "keywords vs. identifiers" and "common prefixes"
can be handled without havinging to use syntactic or semantic

Thanks a million,
