[ragel-users] Go target with

I'm delighted to see the decision to reinclude the additional target
languages as noted in [1].

The help screed from ragel v7.0.0.11 says that it will target a variety
of languages, including Go. However, it looks to me like the -Z is
being ignored; when I tried running ragel on an old rl file that I
wrote for 6.8 I had a failure with '"byte" is not a valid alphabet
type'. I looked at the examples in the ragel repo in examples/go and
these generate C code when built with the instructions there.

Is the help screed jumping the gun or is there a problem in the
invocation, or something deeper?
