+Description: SHARED library for flex (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.
+ .
+ This package contains the shared library for flex.
