Hi all,
could anyone help me to a lex regular expression that will pick-up a
string of the format:
"Any text and a double quote like this "" and this too"
This is what some silly language uses and I need to read it with my
(f)lex program. I just don't know how to go about it.

but since strings can be long, I'd rather use start states to go into
a string scanning state and then back out. -John]
