There was a discussion in comp.compilers concerning alternatives to Lex in
February. I am currently investigating lexical analyzer generators
and have tracked down many of the articles cited in the discussion.
Thank you, one and all.

I now would like to learn of any other scanner generators. I am not
as concerned with performance issues as the previous discussion was.
Also, I could use some pointers to information about LexAGen and Rex.
They were mentioned in the discussion, but I do not recall seeing
references on them.

Thank you,
