Thats also an interesting usage of xpressive.
I dont have an acute need for scanners, my parsing needs are currently
focused on biological formats which are just database dumps most of the
time. So I have to work on character level most of the time.
But provided that I work on parsing a scripting language, or rather a
language which is intended for parsing by software, I would try to
implement a lexer first. And use that lexer as scanner object in spirit.
I think it is a bit strangely that there are several generic C++
replacements for yacc/bison, but nothing similar to lex/flex, that can
be intergrated into spirit (integrated as scanner that is).
