Re this question: Lexical Tie-Ins with Flex and Bison there are two things called "flex". Is there another tag for one or the other which could be used instead?

gnu-flex has become the tag to use. I've retagged the question accordingly.
I'm not sure how to go about editing tags, or I would have already, but this was a poor choice of tag. Flex is not a gnu program -- never was and never will be. It's distributed under a BSD-style license, not the GPL. Nothing should be done to foster the utterly false notion that Flex is associated with GNU in any way.
