Release 2.5.3 of flex, a POSIX-compliant "lex" scanner generator, is now
available for anonymous ftp to ftp.ee.lbl.gov. Retrieve flex-2.5.3.tar.Z
or flex-2.5.3.tar.gz, or context diffs as flex-2.5.2-2.5.3.diff.Z or
flex-2.5.2-2.5.3.diff.gz. The diffs are much smaller than the full

flex-2.5.3.tar.gz and flex-2.5.2-2.5.3.diff.gz should be showing up shortly at
the usual GNU mirror sites.

The main changes between 2.5.3 and 2.5.2 are fixes for using yymore() in
combination with input() and unput(). These fixes are required for porting
to flex AT&T lex scanners that use that combination. See the NEWS file for
details and other minor changes.

Please report bugs to: vern@ee.lbl.gov or bug-gnu-utils@prep.ai.mit.edu
