Gerwin Klein has released JFlex 1.4, a free (GPL) lexical analyzer generator for Java written in Java. "JFlex is designed to work together with the LALR parser generator CUP by Scott Hudson, and the Java modification of Berkeley Yacc BYacc/J by Bob Jamison. It can also be used together with other parser generators like ANTLR or as a standalone tool."
