Hi nikhil,

Flex and bison have superseded lex and yacc respectively.
As flex and bison are compatible with the syntax of lex
and yacc, any program written for lex or yacc will run in
flex and bison.

I did write a small compiler/translator in flex and bison and did
not encounter any major differences. So unless you are working
on a really big project i don't believe Flex/Bison will make 
any difference as compared to lex and yacc.
