      I am using flex as lexical scanner for computing some metrics
about a C/C++ program.

I need to identify some regular expression in all "start" conditions.
I flex documenatation, it is specified to use <*>r to match the regular
expression r for all start conditions. When I use the <*>r, flex can not
build a lexer and giving a error message "bad start condition".

Is it a bug in flex or am I doing something wrong?

Please, email your suggestions to:
