ragel Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies ragel-7.0.4.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
                 Colm.Net Suite of Programs

This package contains the Colm Programming Language, Ragel State Machine Compiler 7.0+, and supporting libraries.


This package has no external dependencies, other than usual autotools and C/C++ compiler programs.

For the program:

make libtool gcc g++ autoconf automake

For the docucumentation:

  • asciidoc
  • fig2dev


Colm is built in the usual autotool way:

$ ./autogen $ ./configure $ make $ make install


The colm program depends on GCC at runtime. It produces a C program as output, then compiles and links it with a runtime library. The compiled program depends on the colm library.

Notes on RUNNING

To find the includes and the runtime library to pass to GCC, colm looks at argv[0] to decide if it is running out of the source tree. If it is, then the compile and link flags are derived from argv[0]. Otherwise, it uses the install location (prefix) to construct the flags.


There are vim syntax definition files colm.vim and ragel.vim
