Do you known the yyless implementation which give a complete
compatibility whith flex. In effect I have a file.l lex which give
good result on a sun after generation of lex.yy.c and a bad result
with a flex generation (On HP and Linux) I think that yyless don't
give the same result in this two environement. Any information on
this problem greathly appreciated Thanks
[Lex copies the token into a separate buffer, while flex just make a pointer
into the I/O buffer. This sometimes causes problems in sloppy code. -John]
