Error 'no viable alternative at character '<EOF>' [message #1070545] Thu, 18 July 2013 07:30 Go to next message

I have this grammar:

Model:
  definitions += Locations*
;

Locations:
  Global | Local
;

Global:
  '@Global_Save' path=STR2 ';'
;

Local: {Local}
  local='Locale' 'Save' ('To' path=STR2)? ';'
;

STR2 hidden():
   STRING2;

terminal STRING2: '"' -> '"' ;


I have this configuration in a text file:

@Global_Save "dir_01\";
Locale Save "dir_01\";


But I keep on getting this error:
ERROR:no viable alternative at character '<EOF>'
ERROR:mismatched input 'dir_01' expecting RULE_STR2
ERROR:mismatched input '\' expecting 'Locale'
ERROR:no viable alternative at character '<EOF>'

If I put "dir_01\" in @Global_Save, my generation works successfully. But if I use the same input in Locale, I get the errors I mentioned above. Does somebody know what the problem is?

I've tried setting the Local to "dir_01" and "dir_01/", and I did not get any errors.

You have a syntax error on your second line.
According to your language, Locale Save can only be followed by 'To' or ';' but you have followed it with a ".

I have the same problem, but with the character ' '

-------------------
My grammar is:

Program_heading: "program" IDENTIFIER '(' Identifier_list ')' ';';

Identifier_list: IDENTIFIER ( ',' IDENTIFIER )*;

terminal IDENTIFIER: LETTER (LETTER | DIGIT)*;

terminal fragment LETTER: ('A'..'Z'|'a'..'z');

terminal fragment DIGIT:
('0'..'9')
;
----------------------

When i run in a new Eclipse Aplication, the follow program input make an ERROR(no viable alternative at character ' ')

program Program1 (id);.

Why this error occurs?
It was for the compiler simply ignore whitespace!

Hi,

do you use terminals or not if so you have to redefine ws and set it to be hidden.

I have edited the grammar.
@Global_Save "dir_01\";
Locale Save To "dir_01\";


Why can't I use "\" in the path? I am using terminal and have set STR2 to hidden.

Model:
  definitions += Locations*
;

Locations:
  Global | Local
;

Global:
  '@Global_Save' path=STR2 ';'
;

Local: {Local}
  local='Locale' 'Save' ('To' path=STR2)? ';'
;

STR2 hidden():
   STRING2;

terminal STRING2: '"' -> '"' ;

Hi,

have a look at Xtexts default STRINGValueConverter which does \\ escaping

Hi,

I have read the documentation for string value converter. Do you have tutorial/example that can show me how to implement this?

I cannot do STRING2.toEscapedString, can I?

Thank you.
