Package ragel

Finite state machine compiler

Ragel compiles executable finite state machines from regular languages.
Ragel targets C, C++ and ASM. Ragel state machines can not only recognize
byte sequences as regular expression machines do, but can also execute code
at arbitrary points in the recognition of a regular language. Code embedding
is done using inline operators that do not disrupt the regular language syntax.
