There are a number of other FST programs as well. The Stuttgart FST tools (sfst, see http://www.ims.uni-stuttgart.de/projekte/gramotron/SOFTWARE/SFST.html) are freely licensed (I'm not sure what the current licensing is on the Xerox tools, it used to be partly restricted). SFST has Python and Ruby interfaces--not C/ C++, afaik.
