       dlg - DFA Lexical Analyzer Generator


       dlg [options] lexical_spec [output_file]


       dlg  is  a  tool  that produces fast deterministic finite automata for recognizing regular
       expressions in input.


       -CC    Generate C++ output.  The output_file is not specified in this case.

       -C[ level]
              Where level is the compression level used.  0 indications no compression, 1 removes
              all  unused  characters  from  the  transition  from  table,  and 2 maps equivalent
              characters into the same character classes.  It is  suggested  that  level  -C2  is
              used,  since  it will significantly reduce the size of the dfa produced for lexical

       -m     Produces the header file for the lexical mode with a name other  than  the  default
              name of "mode.h".

       -i     An  interactive, or as interactive as possible, parser is produced.  A character is
              only obtained when required to decide which state to go  to.   Some  care  must  be
              taken  to obtain accept states that do not require look ahead at the next character
              to determine if that is the stop state.   Any  regular  expression  with  a  Kleene
              closure at the end is guaranteed to require another character of look ahead.

       -cl class
              Specify  a  class name for DLG to generate.  The default is DLGLexer.  "class" will
              be a subclass of DLGLexerBase; only used for -CC.

       -ci    The automaton will treat upper and lower  case  characters  identically.   This  is
              accomplished in the automaton; the characters in the lexical buffer are unmodified.

       -cs    Upper and lower case characters are treated as distinct.  This is the default.

       -o dir Directory  where  output  files  should  go  (default=".").   This is very nice for
              keeping the source directory clear of ANTLR and DLG spawn.

              Warns if more than one regular expression could match the same character  sequence.
              The  warnings  give the numbers of the expressions in the dlg lexical specification
              file.  The numbering of the expressions starts at one.  Multiple  warnings  may  be
              print for the same expressions.

       -      Used  in  place  of  file  names  to  get  input from standard in or send output to
              standard out.


       Dlg works...  we think.  There is no implicit guarantee of anything.  We reserve no  legal
       rights  to the software known as the Purdue Compiler Construction Tool Set (PCCTS) — PCCTS
       is in the public domain.  An individual or company may do whatever they wish  with  source
       code distributed with PCCTS or the code generated by PCCTS, including the incorporation of
       PCCTS, or its output, into commercial software.  We encourage users  to  develop  software
       with  PCCTS.   However,  we  do  ask  that credit is given to us for developing PCCTS.  By
       "credit", we mean that if you incorporate our  source  code  into  one  of  your  programs
       (commercial  product,  research  project,  or  otherwise)  that  you acknowledge this fact
       somewhere in the documentation, research report,  etc...   If  you  like  PCCTS  and  have
       developed  a  nice tool with the output, please mention that you developed it using PCCTS.
       As long as these guidelines are followed, we expect to continue enhancing this system  and
       expect to make other tools available as they are completed.
