Exercise for your students: Characterize the set of all strings of the form `A+"-"+B` which can occur (as three tokens) in some valid Java program, where `A` and `B` are Java keywords or identifiers, but not both are identifiers.
`A=m,B=int` in `int m=0, n = m-int.class.hashCode()`
`A=assert,B=m` in `assert-m>0`.
`A=B=do` in `x=redo-done`.
