Subject Re: [Falcon] ASDocTokenizer and RawASDocTokenizer JFlex deps

No, this has nothing to do with your code. I am using the ASDocTokenizer
which uses the RawASDocTokenizer that is generated by JFlex.

I really doubt you have touched that class, all it does is call nextToken()
on the JFlex scanner. It's the JFlex scanner that is hitting a loop while
trying to end the scan of the doc comment.
