+This is release 2.5 of flex. See "version.h" for the exact patch-level.
+See the file "NEWS" to find out what is new in this Flex release.
+Read the file "INSTALL" for general installation directives. Peek near
+the beginning of the file "" for special DEFS values. On most
+systems, you can just run the "configure" script and type "make" to build
+flex; then "make check" to test whether it built correctly; and if it did,
+then "make install" to install it.
+If you're feeling adventurous, you can also issue "make bigcheck" (be
+prepared to wait a while).
+Note that flex is distributed under a copyright very similar to that of
+BSD Unix, and not under the GNU General Public License (GPL), except for
+the "configure" script, which is covered by the GPL.
+Many thanks to the 2.5 beta-testers for finding bugs and helping test and
+increase portability: Stan Adermann, Scott David Daniels, Charles Elliott,
+Joe Gayda, Chris Meier, James Nordby, Terrence O'Kane, Karsten Pahnke,
+Francois Pinard, Pat Rankin, Andreas Scherer, Marc Wiese, Nathan Zelle.
