help needed with lexer

Can someone help me understand the following code :
protected void parse(ParametersHeader parametersHeader)
	throws ParseException {
		this.lexer.SPorHT();
		while (lexer.lookAhead(0) == ';') {
			this.lexer.consume(1);
			//this.lexer.match(';');
			// eat white space
			this.lexer.SPorHT();
			NameValue nv = nameValue();
			parametersHeader.setParameter(nv);
			// eat white space
			this.lexer.SPorHT();		   
		}
	}

Open in new window


basically  the lexer contains a stringbuffer and if I pass sthg like :

<sas>; kkkk=hass; cas=aaaa

I only get <sas>; cas=aaaa and the middle part is just filtered out
