i want to pipe files to stdin of my lex-programm. Lex should give back a special token for the eof-charakter to the main-programm.
Is it possible, and how?

. if(yytext[0] == EOF) { .. }

BTW,

When you pipe the output of 'tar' or 'more' etc. to the compiled lex-file, the programm will not detect the End of the Input this way.
