Have you looked at the examples included as part of the distribution?
On my machine, they can be found in "C:\Program Files\Ragel
6.7\ragel-6.7\examples".  Probably most relevant to crack (from your
description) is the clang.rl file ("A mini C-like language scanner.")
or perhaps the cppscan.rl file ("A C++ scanner. Uses the longest match
construction.").  I found many of the examples very enlightening on
how to use Ragel / get started.  Hope that helps!
