+# SYNOPSIS
+#
+#   AX_PROG_FLEX_VERSION([VERSION],[ACTION-IF-TRUE],[ACTION-IF-FALSE])
+#
+# DESCRIPTION
+#
+#   Makes sure that flex version is greater or equal to the version indicated.
+#   If true the shell commands in ACTION-IF-TRUE are executed. If not the shell
+#   commands in commands in ACTION-IF-TRUE are executed. If not the shell
+#   commands in ACTION-IF-FALSE are run. Note if $FLEX is not set (for example
+#   by running AC_CHECK_PROG or AC_PATH_PROG) the macro will fail.
+#
+#   Example:
+#
+#     AC_PATH_PROG([FLEX],[flex])
+#     AX_PROG_FLEX_VERSION([2.5.39],[ ... ],[ ... ])
+#
+#   This will check to make sure that the flex you have is at least
+#   version 2.5.39 or greater.
+#
+#   NOTE: This macro uses the $FLEX variable to perform the check.
