+Miscellaneous flex stuff. The items which have been tested with flex 2.5 are:
+
+ - texinfo/, a subdirectory containing a "texinfo" version of flex(1)
+ and the corresponding "info" files (contributed by Francois Pinard).
+
+ - VMS/, a subdirectory containing makefiles, configuration files,
+ run-time support, and installation notes for building flex 2.5
+ on VMS (contributed by Pat Rankin).
+
+ - Borland/ - makefile and config.h for Borland 4.02 compiler
+ (contributed by Terrence O Kane, who notes that no source
+ code changes were necessary).
+
+ - NT/ - Makefile and config.h for NT, contributed by Stan Adermann.
+
+ - OS2/ - Makefile and config.h for building flex under OS/2,
+ contributed by Kai Uwe Rommel.
+
+ - Amiga/: notes on building flex for the Amiga, contributed
+ by Andreas Scherer.
+
+ - parse.c, parse.h - output of running yacc (byacc, actually)
+ on parse.y. If your system doesn't have a flavor of yacc available,
+ copy these into the main flex source directory instead.
+
+ - flex.man - preformatted version of flex man page
+
+
+The following have been tested using flex 2.4:
+
+ - debflex.awk, an awk script for anotating flex debug output.
+ It presently only works with gawk and mawk, not with "old"
+ or "new" awk.
+
+ - NeXT: ProjectBuilder.app support for use in the NeXT world.
+
+ - Notes on building flex for the Macintosh using Think-C,
+ in the Macintosh/ subdirectory.
+
+ - testxxLexer.l, a sample C++ program that uses flex's scanner
+ class option ("-+").
+
+ - fastwc/, a subdirectory containing examples of how to use flex
+ to write progressively higher-performance versions of the Unix
+ "wc" utility. This certainly should work with 2.5, but hasn't
+ been tested.
+
+ - Borland.old/: notes on building flex 2.4 for Borland C++ 3.1
+ on MS-DOS. These shouldn't be needed for flex 2.5. Included
+ only in case you encounter unanticipated difficulties.
+
+ - EBCDIC: contact information for building flex for EBCDIC.
+
+
+The following are all out-of-date with respect to flex release 2.4 (and
+in general up-to-date for flex 2.3):
+
+ - Atari/Atari.patches, patches for porting flex to the Atari and
+ to Minix.
+
+ - A number of notes and Makefiles for compiling flex under MS-DOS,
+ in the MSDOS/ subdirectory.
+
+ - Notes on building flex for MVS, in the MVS/ subdirectory.
+
+If any of this is out-of-date and can be deleted, please let me know.
+
+And the following is included for compatibility with some broken versions
+of bison:
+
+ - alloca.c, a public-domain, mostly-portable version of the
+ alloca() routine (used by bison's parsers) written by D. A. Gwyn.
+
+
+Many thanks to those who contributed these files. Updated versions will
+be appreciated!
