Description (last modified by damato)

There seems to be a new, faster and easier scanner engine out there which looks quite promising. Even the PHP people seem to have switched from a flex-based scanner to a re2c based one. Therefore it might be worth a look.

See here for more information: http://re2c.org/

It also supports the CONDITION support which we are using in our flex-based scanners, thus it should be relatively easy to use re2c instead of flex ;)
