I am a student of Computer Science at the Univeristy of Cambridge, writing
a compiler for my final year project. I am having difficulty getting JCUP
(with a JLex Lexer) to terminate when reaching an EOF. Instead it throws a
Java.lang.NullPointerException exception.

Does anybody know why this might be, or knows precisely when JCUP's
parse() method returns? The documentation seems to suggest it returns when
the goal has been matched successfully, regardless of an EOF, but again
this does not appear to be the case.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Nitin Kumar Goel.
