lexertl started life as a regex library. After the initial development
boost::regex and decided there wasn't much point in yet another
regex library and instead went on to develop lexertl. What changed was I saw
this post on StackOverflow.
This library is bare bones. I haven't coded lookup for it and I haven't coded a code generator. The only thing it is good for at the moment is for passing a regex and dumping the state machine. It would be easy to develop a simple code generator for embeded work if anyone is interested in that. I'm happy to embark on that if there is interest. At this point, to go beyond he obvious switch statement solution and get clever like re2c, I'd welcome some collaboration.
