Flex iconFlex 2.5.38

A fast, Open Source and cross-platform lexical analyzer and scanner generator tool
Flex is widely known as the fast lexical analyser, it is an open source, 100% free and multi-platform command-line application written in the C/C++ programming languages and designed to be used for generating scanners.

The scanners generated by the Flex tool, which is a non-GNU free implementation of Lex, are actually programs that can recognize lexical patterns in text, also known as applications that perform pattern-matching on text.

Flex has been designed in such a way that it can generate a C source file called "lex.yy.c" that can define the yylex() function. It works well on both Linux and BSD operating systems.
