What prevents us from generating the code during make dist time and therefore not shipping flex.exe?

Hi,

No, that's not true, we did ship the flex-generated code a time ago, but
as that part of code changes sometimes, we decided to generate it during
compilation time, and the flex.exe came with the first support of
Windows (CMake).


Regards,
Shiqing
