Hi
Having successfully coded a program that measures the Cyclomatic Complexity of a Java Source code file using the String Tokenizer class. I am in the middle of coding another using the Java Regex class for learning purposes.

Is it possible by using the Java Regex class to Ignore comments from a file being read without using the slashSlash from the StreamTokenizer? I tried COMMENTS in the Regex class but had no luck.

Also:
Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("if|for|while|case|switch",Pattern.COMMENTS);

How can the line above get sorted so that my count will only count the keyWords and not be greedy and count the "If" in " I found out " .

Please help !

Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. I'm closing this one and leaving the one in JiG (Intermediate) open.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
