Hello, here is an updated entry for Ragel. Please note that I have fixed
and important detail regarding the license. It is now clearly stated
on my web page and in output files that ragel generated code is not
covered by the GPL. Code coppied to output from the source (like bison)
may be used without restriction.

%%name: Ragel State Machine Comiler

%%short-description: Compiles finite state machines from regular languages
        into runnable C code.

%%full-description: Ragel compiles finite state machines from regular
        languages into runnable C code. It allows you to embed
        function calls at any point in your regular language, and
        to control the non-determinism in the resulting machines. It
        understands concatenation, union (the "or" operator), kleene star,
        subtraction, and intersection, as well as some helpers like "!",
        "?" and "+". Ragel's finite state machines are closed under all
        of its operators. This property allows for arbitrary regular
        lanuages to be described. It can be used to create a parser for
        any language that is regular.
