Hi,

Based on your description, I wasn't able to determine whether your lexing
module also support extending the lexer state (like in Lindig's proposal)?

    http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~lindig/software/lexing.html

At any rate, I'm definitely interested. However, I'd like to see these
features included in the ocamllex that comes with the Ocaml distribution.

Is it too much to ask that these ocamllex enhancements (including the
enhancements by Christian Lindig) would be proposed for the Ocaml
distribution?

If necessary, I'm willing to share some of the necessary work in order to get
these enhancements into the Ocaml distribution.

I've already made a reentrant replacement for the Parsing module. I think that
parsers could also benefit from the ability to extend the parser state.

Best regards,
  Vesa Karvonen
