Lalo and I were just talking on #vos, he was having problems with the
flex-generated scanner files, which has been a recurring problem for
people trying to build VOS for quite a while.
It occurred to me that maybe the ideal solution would be to eliminate flex
(and bison) altogether. This would mean two things:
* For libvos, we would drop support for the "legacy" text/xml based VOP
and only support the binary encoding (which is the current default anyhow)
* For everything else (parsing the search query language, vosapp config
files, and mesh command line) we would covert over to using boost::spirit,
which is a template-based recursive decent parser generator.
Braden, you're using spirit for OpenVRML, right? What's your experience
been? Our needs are quite modest.
