(later perhaps a database) for various pattern and have to generate
various actions depending on the search result. With the tools LEX and
YACC there is only a static possibility, which means that I have to
compile new every time I have a new search pattern.

What dynamic possibilities are there to do this on the fly without
compiling new or are threre already any tools available that pass my

Thanks says Lars Zapf
