I'm writing a program that has multiple threads running the same
compiler. With bison, I can make a reentrant parser (%pure_parser) but
flex doesn't seem to support the same option. All I really need is to
collect all the flex globals into one structure that I can make a
thread specific global. Has someone already done this?

thanks, joshp
