A fast lexical analyzer generator.
Flex is a tool for generating scanners: programs which recognized lexical
patterns in text. It reads the given input files for a description of a
scanner to generate. The description is in the form of pairs of regular
expressions and C code, called rules. Flex generates as output a C source
file, lex.yy.c, which defines a routine yylex(). This file is compiled
and linked with the -lfl library to produce an executable. When the
executable is run, it analyzes its input for occurrences of the regular
expressions. Whenever it finds one, it executes the corresponding C code.
Starting with version 2.5.31-18 of flex we have started providing
a static library compiled with position independent code, namely,
libfl_pic.a. The problem is with packages that contain shared
libraries with a flex scanner compiled in. Since flex generates code
that is not self contained, and the missing symbols live in
libfl.a. However, since linking a shared library with a object
