eiffel.l

The gelex scanner description provided here is a possible implementation for the Eiffel syntax. It is given as an example for a better understanding of the Eiffel syntax specification but is not complete in the sense that it does not process the semantic values of the tokens. The parser description associated with this Eiffel scanner is also available.
