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.
