Something intended or supposed to represent or indicate another thing or an event; a sign; a symbol; as, the rainbow is a token of God's covenant established with Noah.
Something given or shown as a symbol or guarantee of authority or right; a sign of authenticity, of power, good faith, etc.
A fundamental symbol as processed by syntax analysis. A token may be an identifier 'Result', a reserved keyword if, a compound symbol '=', or a single character '+'.
The smallest independent unit of meaning of a program as defined either by a parser or a lexical analyzer. IBM. In C++, there are five kinds of tokens: identifiers, keywords, literals, operators, and other separators.
An animal, herb stone, scent, or an engraved character used as a symbol to invoke the god in charge of one's particular problem.
From RDF Semantics ( 2004-02-10) (n.) A particular physical inscription of a symbol or expression in a document. Usually contrasted with type , the abstract grammatical form of an expression.
The smallest sequence of characters recognized by a parser, a number or identifier, for example.
a catagory that is recognized by the parser
a code or a symbol used in place of an actual data value
a fragment of a string that conveys some lexical meaning to the next phase of the scripting language (the parser, more on this at a later date or read about it here )
an indivisible lexical unit such as an identifier or number
an outward sign or expression, a symbol or emblem
a representation of a number or a symbol
a sign, indication, or symbol of something other than itself
a string enclosed by special delimiter symbols if it does not contain any of these delimiters
a symbol or a memento
a symbol or name that tells the parser which pattern is being sent to it by the input subroutine
a symbol or name that tells yyparse which pattern is being sent to it by the input routine
a symbol that matches lexemes, and is the output of the lexical analyzer
a terminal symbol for the parser but a syntactically structured symbol for the scanner
a terminal symbol of the programming language, that the reader (parser) passes to the compiler or interpreter
The smallest independent unit of meaning as defined by a lexical analyzer or a parser.
An atomic symbol of the source program.
A symbol defined by a lexer. We try to use this term to mean the set of terminal symbols defined by the lexer. This is a subset of the complete set of terminal symbols. An identifier is a token, but a keyword is not, because the keyword is classified as an identifier by the lexer.
A sequence of bits (symbol of authority) that is passed successively along a transmission medium from one device to another to indicate the device that is temporarily in control of the transmission medium. Each device can acquire and use the token to control the medium.
Anything treated as a single symbol during syntax analysis such as a name, a literal or an operator.
The smallest lexical unit in a program. The Java compiler scans the characters in a program, grouping them into tokens. The 6 basic kinds of tokens are identifiers, keywords, separators, operators, literals (either type int, double, boolean, char, or String), and comments.
A basic, grammatically indivisible unit of a language. The symbol that describes a token in the grammar is a terminal symbol. The input of the Bison parser is a stream of tokens which comes from the lexical analyzer. See Symbols.
a textual representation for a number or a symbol. See Section 2.3 Interpretation of Tokens.
In computing, a token is a categorized block of text, usually consisting of indivisible characters known as lexemes. A lexical analyser initially reads in lexemes and categorizes them according to function, giving them meaning. This assignment of meaning is known as tokenization.
