As I just wrote my first proper lexer a few days ago I'd like to try
this out!
I couldn't get it to work, however.
"Segmentation fault."
I'm on a 32-bit Linux, the 2.2 beta compiles without problem. To make
sure I haven't forgotten anything else, I tried again skipping the
files in the newlexers.tgz - in this case I can compile and just get a
ta without lexers.
Let me know if you need any more info.
