Appendix D [of "lex and yacc" published by O'Reilly -John] was based on a
substantially earlier version of flex. I've found far fewer deviations in
the current (2.3.7) version of flex. What I have seen are that flex and
lex tolerate c-style comments differently in the rules section, handling
"included" files is totally different (use flex, it is so much easier),
and rewriting the input and unput routines differs substantially. I can
hardly claim this list is complete, but these are the differences which
quickly come to my mind.
The 2nd printing contains a corrected Appendix D. The 2nd edition is
still under way, albeit quite slowly.
