Release 2.4.5 of flex (a replacement for the Unix lex tool) is now
available for anonymous ftp to ftp.ee.lbl.gov; retrieve flex-2.4.5.tar.Z
or flex-2.4.5.tar.gz, or, if you've already installed release 2.4.4,
flex-2.4.4-2.4.5.diff.Z. ".gz" versions of these files should be showing
up shortly at the usual GNU mirror sites.
I've appended a description of the main differences between 2.4.5 and 2.4.4,
taken from the "NEWS" file.

Changes between release 2.4.5 (11Dec93) and release 2.4.4:
- Fixed bug breaking C++ scanners that use REJECT or variable
- Fixed serious input problem for interactive scanners on
systems for which char is unsigned.
- Fixed bug in incorrectly treating '$' operator as variable
- Fixed bug in -CF table representation that could lead to
- Fixed fairly benign memory leak.
- Added `extern "C++"' wrapper to FlexLexer.h header. This
should overcome the g++ 2.5.X problems mentioned in the
NEWS for release 2.4.3.
- Changed #include of FlexLexer.h to use <> instead of "".
- Added feature to control whether the scanner attempts to
refill the input buffer once it's exhausted. This feature
will be documented in the 2.5 release.
