Problem: Write a Lex program for Decimal to Binary conversion.

FLEX (Fast Lexical Analyzer Generator) is a tool/computer program for generating lexical analyzers (scanners or lexers) written by Vern Paxson in C around 1987. Lex reads an input stream specifying the lexical analyzer and outputs source code implementing the lexer in the C programming language. The function yylex() is the main flex function which runs the Rule Section.

/* Lex program for decimal to binary conversion */
  /* Definition section */
  int num, r, b=0, p=1;
DIGIT [0-9]
/* Rule Section */
{DIGIT}+   { num=atoi(yytext);
             while (num > 0)
              r= num % 2;
              b+= r*p;
              p*= 10;
              num/= 2;
              printf("%d", b);
.|\n    ECHO;
// driver code 
int main()
    return 0;
