Lex is a computer program that generates lexical analyzers. Lex reads an input stream specifying the lexical analyzer and outputs source code implementing the lexer in the C programming language.

The commands for executing the lex program are:

lex abc.l (abc is the file name)
cc lex.yy.c -efl
./a.out

Let’s see lex program to check valid email.

Examples:

flag = 1; %
