+This directory contains some examples of what you can do with
+flex. These files are not tested regularly so you might have to tinker
+a bit before they work for you. Updates, new files and patches are welcome.
+ - debflex.awk, an awk script for anotating flex debug output.
+ It presently only works with gawk and mawk, not with "old"
+ or "new" awk.
+ - testxxLexer.l, a sample C++ program that uses flex's scanner
+ class option ("-+").
+ - fastwc/, a subdirectory containing examples of how to use flex
+ to write progressively higher-performance versions of the Unix
+ "wc" utility. This certainly should work with 2.5, but hasn't
+ been tested.
