As the (lone) builder of bison++-1.21-7 and flex++-2.3.7-8 I would givve all
my trust to flex2.5 and bisonA2.6...

flex2.4 have a very nice, and simple design and works well with bison++

bisonA2.6 is probably the evolution of bisonA1, which was very promising
at it's time... it must be good, yet I know nothing about it.

Flex++ and bison++ works well, but they have not evolved for years
(I have no time) and ahe an obsoleted basis (flex2.3 and bison 1.21)

If anybody know good c++ scanners/parsers I'm also veruy interested.
