I'm currently modifying an application where I forked many
parsers to process seperate input concurrently. I want to change
these forked processes to individual threads. Is flex & yacc MT-Safe
or is it easy to create mutex locks and unlocks around any globals
(ex: yytext).

Has anyone done something similar to this before, or have any

Thanks in advance

[Bison has a pure parser option, but people tell me it doesn't work very well.
It shouldn't be too hard to hack up the parser and lexer skeletons to make them
threadable. -John]
