[ragel-users] Writing a Telnet parser

"plain_text" is actually a bit of a misnomer; it's really anything not
an IAC or a CR, as I have now. The only other difference here seems to
be the + after plain_text, which I've tried. Graphing your example
machine shows that the end_of_plain_text event is still executed after
each plain_text character anyways.

I've decided not to worry too much about it at this point. Thanks for
your help anyways!
