Subject: [Caml-list] (Release) ocamllex tutorial (ver 0.1)

If one doesn't have knowledge for lexcial analyzer or parsing theory, it's
not sufficient for an user to use "ocamllex" and "ocamlyacc" after reading
manuals of these utilities only.

One has to read "lex"/"flex" manual and "yacc"/"bison" manual before using
"ocamllex" and "ocamlyacc".

So, I thought it would be helpful if ocaml community has "ocamllex" and
"ocamlyacc" tutorials.

This is my first contribute to "ocamllex tutorial" and I'm preparing the
companion "ocamlyacc tutorial", too.

Any comment will be appreciated.

--- Abstract ---

This is a tutorial on how to use ocamllex which is distributed with Ocaml

This tutorial borrowed lots of part from flex manual, and some part from
Chap. 12 Lexer and parser generators (ocamllex, ocamlyacc).

The companion tutorial for ocamlyacc will be available in one or two weeks

Please mail all comments and suggestions to <shoh at compiler dot kaist dot

This tutorial is work-in-progress. The latest version can be found at
