Release 2.4.7 of flex (a replacement for the Unix lex scanner-generator) is
now available for anonymous ftp to ftp.ee.lbl.gov; retrieve flex-2.4.7.tar.Z
or flex-2.4.7.tar.gz, or, if you've already installed release 2.4.6,
flex-2.4.6-2.4.7.diff.Z. ".gz" versions of these files should be showing
up shortly at the usual GNU mirror sites.

This is a bug-fix release - no new features. I've appended a description
of the differences between 2.4.7 and 2.4.6, taken from the "NEWS" file.

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