Tom Epperly of the University of Wisconsin at Madison has supplied me with
a patch to add using C++ iostreams to flex scanners. This patch will
appear in some form (either as part of the standard scanner skeleton, or
as a contributed file in the MISC/ directory, probably the former) in the
upcoming 2.4 release of flex, which, honestly, is coming out quite soon.
If you don't feel like waiting until 2.4 comes out drop me a line and I'll
email you the patch.
