Hi, folks. I need the help of someone else's eyes. It seems to me,
looking at the code for Display::expandVariables, that state 6 in the
scanner is totally redundant. Couldn't the same task be accomplished
by changing state 5 to treat the '$' just like any other non-alpha,
non-underscore character, and fall back to state 2 with a continue?
State 6 seems like just a concatenation of states 2 and 3, with handling
of non-$ characters stripped out. If I can get rid of state 6, it makes
adding code to handle $%(foo) and $&(foo) easier, but I don't want to
break something inadvertently. As far as I can tell, the only function
of state 6 is to handle the character after the second '$' in something
like $foo$bar or $foo$(bar), which I think a fallback to state 2 would
accomplish. Any reason not to remove it?
