Custom Language: Very confused about idea-flex.skeleton

I'm very confused about the contents of idea-flex.skeleton from the IDEA
5.0.1 dev package. It doesn't look like a JFlex .flex file at all (e.g.
JavaScript.flex). What is it supposed to be?

Thanks,
Gordon

You never need to look at this file. You pass it as the skeleton to JFlex in the
lexer generation options window.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the tip. The article by Dmitry Jemerov didn't make
this particularly clear. Maybe it would have become clear once I
actually tried to use JFlex.

Ciao,
