Bug#436982: ITP: ulex0.8 -- OCaml lexer generator with Unicode support - CamlP5 version

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stefano Zacchiroli <zack@debian.org>

* Package name    : ulex0.8
  Version         : 0.8

  Description     : OCaml lexer generator with Unicode support - CamlP5 version

 ulex is a lexer generator for the Objective Caml (OCaml) programming
 It is implemented as a Camlp4 syntax extension: lexer specifications
 are embedded in regular OCaml code.
 Generated lexers work with a new kind of "lexbuf" that supports
 Unicode; a single lexer can work with arbitrary encodings of the input
 This package ships the latest release of ulex compatible with Camlp4
 pre OCaml 3.10 (now called CamlP5). Applications which need both ulex
 and the legacy version of Camlp4 might need to use this package instead
 of ocaml-ulex (the latter shipping the latest available ulex release which
 requires Camlp4 >= 3.10)).

The package is a repacking of the ulex package which is currently in
unstable. For the transition period from OCaml 3.09 to OCaml 3.10,
developers are likely to need both the new version of ulex (1.0, which
is already in experimental) and the new one (the subject of this ITP).
Moreover, some packages which are currently in Debian will FTBFS with
OCaml 3.10 without this precise version of ulex, built against camlp5.
