Okay, a dynamic LEX. LEX is old technology now and there should be a modern
equivalent availiable.


Basically a library that provides the LEX machine behavour that works on a
DFA or set of DFA's generated by a tool from a set of regular expressions
and character equavalence classes or LEX like file. The LEX tool is also
availiable as a dynamic library component, which can work from a file or an
intermediate set of data structures, which can be generated using the
library.


This should ideally be implemented in an object oriented language, ideally
C++.


Direct DFA from RE generation is prefered. Implementation of beginning and
end of line anchors would be good, but lookahead is not really required.


I do not know whether this would fit in your time scales, but a prototype
should.

Aaron
