Release 2.5.4 of flex, a POSIX-compliant "lex" scanner generator, is now
available for anonymous ftp to ftp.ee.lbl.gov. Retrieve flex-2.5.4.tar.Z
or flex-2.5.4.tar.gz, or context diffs as flex-2.5.3-2.5.4.diff.Z or
flex-2.5.3-2.5.4.diff.gz. The diffs are much smaller than the full
flex-2.5.4.tar.gz and flex-2.5.3-2.5.4.diff.gz should be showing up shortly at
the usual GNU mirror sites.
The main change between 2.5.4 and 2.5.3 is a bug fix for calling input()
at the end of an input file. The other user-visible change makes one of
the examples in the documentation, which previously failed, now work.
See the NEWS file for details and other minor changes.
If you have been using 2.5.3 without any glaring problems, there is no
pressing need to upgrade to 2.5.4.
