 5.2 Format of the Rules Section
 The "rules" section of the `flex' input contains a series of rules of
 the form:
          pattern   action
    where the pattern must be unindented and the action must begin on
 the same line.   Patterns, for a further description of patterns
 and actions.
    In the rules section, any indented or %{ %} enclosed text appearing
 before the first rule may be used to declare variables which are local
 to the scanning routine and (after the declarations) code which is to be
 executed whenever the scanning routine is entered.  Other indented or
 %{ %} text in the rule section is still copied to the output, but its
 meaning is not well-defined and it may well cause compile-time errors
 (this feature is present for POSIX compliance.  Lex and Posix,
 for other such features).
    Any _indented_ text or text enclosed in `%{' and `%}' is copied
 verbatim to the output (with the %{ and %} symbols removed).  The %{
 and %} symbols must appear unindented on lines by themselves.
