Tool for generating C-based recognizers from regular expressions
This package is a clone of the re2c package made for openSUSE 13.2. It's
intention is solely to provide the re2c utility for building PANDA DCS
packages for Scientific Linux. SL does not provide re2c in its own
repositories. It is available via EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux),
but this EPEL repository cannot be used from Open Build Service.
re2c is a tool for writing fast and flexible lexers. Unlike other such
tools, it concentrates solely on generating efficient code for matching
regular expressions. This makes it suitable for a wide variety of
applications. The generated scanners approach hand-crafted ones in
terms of size and speed.
