Release 2.4.6 of flex (a replacement for the Unix lex scanner-generator) is
now available for anonymous ftp to ftp.ee.lbl.gov; retrieve flex-2.4.6.tar.Z
or flex-2.4.6.tar.gz, or, if you've already installed release 2.4.5,
flex-2.4.5-2.4.6.diff.Z. ".gz" versions of these files should be showing
up shortly at the usual GNU mirror sites.
I've appended a description of the main differences between 2.4.6 and 2.4.5,
taken from the "NEWS" file.

Changes between release 2.4.6 (04Jan94) and release 2.4.5:
- Linking with -lfl no longer required if your program includes
its own yywrap() and main() functions. (This change will cause
problems if you have a non-ANSI compiler on a system for which
sizeof(int) != sizeof(void*) or sizeof(int) != sizeof(size_t).)
- The use of 'extern "C++"' in FlexLexer.h has been modified to
get around an incompatibility with g++'s header files.
