This is sadly a limitation, in that we must assume that the output generated
by lex and flex when a '-o' option is not given is 'yy.lex.c' (this would
not be needed if we could assume the '-o' option works, but that assumption
is not portable enough yet).  The --c++ option of flex seem to break this
expectation of the ylwrap script.  I *think* it can be worked around by
explicitly adding "-o lex.yy.c" to your AM_LFLAGS.  Can you verify that
solves your problem?

Thanks,
   Stefano

--f46d04428dc6753f830507930eac
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

Hello,

I am trying to use flex with these options
AM_LFLAGS = --header-file=lang.h --yyclass=Lang --c++
My problem is that the file generated by lex is lex.yy.cc and not lex.yy.c.
So this command in the generated Makefile:
.lpp.cpp:
    $(AM_V_LEX)$(am__skiplex) $(SHELL) $(YLWRAP) $< $(LEX_OUTPUT_ROOT).c $@
-- $(LEXCOMPILE)

turns my lang.lpp to lang.cppc

I have looked in the ylwrap by launching it with $(SHELL) -x and had this
printed
++ printf '%s\n' lex.yy.cc
++ sed 's|lex\.yy\.c|lang.cpp|g;'
+ to=lang.cppc

Am I doing it worng or is this a bug?

Thanks.
