Hi, I think I've found a bug in a compiler. For the reproduction of this behaviour, use asrun sample, but modify the script in the script.as so the enum E looks similar to this one:

enum E
VALUE1 = 20somegarbage,
VALUE2 = 30moregarbage

The application will compile and run without any error. But it should throw some "bad suffix on number" error information.
I think that the problem is in as_tokenizer.cpp in method:

bool asCTokenizer::IsConstant(const char *source, size_t sourceLength, size_t &tokenLength, eTokenType &tokenType) const

which identifies "20somegarbage" and "30moregarbage" as ttIntConstant. In this loop:

size_t n;
for( n = 0; n < sourceLength; n++ )
if( source[n] < '0' || source[n] > '9' )

it only goes to first unallowed char (in this case "s" for the VALUE1) and does nothing about the fact that 20somegarbage is not a proper constant identifier here.

For this test I'm using HEAD revision (currently 1301), but this error is present in earlier versions of the AngelScript library.

Thanks in advance!
