I execute the following code on the attached file 'text.txt':

import tokenize
import codecs

with open('text.txt', 'r') as f:
    reader = codecs.getreader('utf-8')(f)
    tokens = tokenize.generate_tokens(reader.readline)

The file 'text.txt' has the following structure: first line with some text, then '\f' symbol (0x0c) on the second line and then some text on the last line. The result is that the function 'generate_tokens' ignores everything after '\f'.

I've made some debugging and found out the following. If the file is read without using codecs (in ascii-mode), there are considered to be 3 lines in the file: 'text1\n', '\f\n', 'text2\n'. However in unicode-mode there are 4 lines: 'text1\n', '\f', '\n', 'text2\n'. I guess this is an intended behaviour since 2.7.x, but this causes a bug in tokenize module.

Consider the lines 317-329 in

column = 0
while pos < max:                   # measure leading whitespace
    if line[pos] == ' ':
        column += 1
    elif line[pos] == '\t':
        column = (column//tabsize + 1)*tabsize
    elif line[pos] == '\f':
        column = 0
    pos += 1
if pos == max:

The last 'break' corresponds to the main parsing loop and makes the parsing stop. Thus the lines that consist of (' ', '\t', '\f') characters and don't end with '\n' are treated as the end of file.
