There are currently two files which need to be edited:
src/json.hpp.re2c (note the
.re2c suffix) - This file contains a comment section which describes the JSON lexic. This section is translated by
re2c into file
src/json.hpp which is plain “vanilla” C++11 code. (In fact, the generated lexer consists of some hundred lines of
gotos, which is a hint you never want to edit this file...).
If you only edit file
src/json.hpp (without the
.re2c suffix), your changes will be overwritten as soon as the lexer is touched again. To generate the
src/json.hpp file which is actually used during compilation of the tests and all other code, please execute
re2c and generate/overwrite file
src/json.hpp with your changes in file
If you add or change a feature, please also add a unit test to this file. The unit tests can be compiled with
and can be executed with
The test cases are also executed with several different compilers on Travis once you open a pull request.
Please understand that I cannot accept pull requests changing only file
src/json.hpp-- please read the paragraph above and understand why
#ifdefs or other means.
