JFLAP both DFA and NFA are created using Finite Automata. . JFLAP’s home page also contains a very thorough tutorial of everything the program can do. JFLAP is written in Java to allow it to run on a range of platforms. JFLAP are going to open a JFLAP saved file of an existing finite automaton (FA). From the. Fill out the form. – 3.

We can test our idea out by freezing the other configuration.

From the pop-up menu, select the checkbox Initial. For instance, with the toolbar above, we are now in the Attribute Editor mode. You can also load the input file instead of typing the string. A text box should appear over the state:.

Building Your First Finite Automaton

To select a tool, click on the corresponding icon with your mouse. A white arrowhead appreas to the left of q 0 to indicate that it is the inital state. A new tab will appear displaying the automaton at the top of the window, and tuotrial at the bottom. From the traceback, we can tell that that configuration started at q 0 and took the transition to q 1 after processing the first a.

A bounding box appears and all states and blocks within the box are selected, their color now blue. The configuration icon shows the current state of the configuration in the top left hand corner, and input on the white tape below.


To define it as the final state, right-click on the state and click the checkbox Final. A new widow will appear showing the traceback of that configuration:.

Clicking Clear deletes all the input strings, while Enter Lambda enters the empty string at the cursor. This should give us a pop-up menu that looks like this:. Selecting the tool puts you in the corresponding mode.

If we click Step again, we will see that the last configuration is rejected. Lastly, we know that only strings that end with an odd number of b ‘s should be accepted. Secondly, if the FA has any transitions that read the empty string for input, tutorual is also considered an NFA.

If the transition on b was to the initial state q 0strings would not have to be of the form a m b n ; strings such as ababab would also be accepted.

Thus, there tktorial only one accepting configuration. We can double-check by resetting the simulator.

However, we might be unsure that this is really the case, as we had removed some configurations. Preferences in the main menu to change the symbol representing the empty string. To define it jflsp be our initial state, first select the Attribute Editor tool on the toolbar. It should look something like this:. The traceback shows the configuration after processing each input symbol. Next, click on the canvas in different tugorial to create states.


To return to the Editor window, select File: Click Step again to process the next a.

Clicking Step two more times will reveal that the configuration on q 3 is not accepted either. A dialog box prompting you for input will appear. To create such a transition, first select the Transition Creator tool from iflap toolbar. To see all the nondeterministic states in the NFA, select Test: To do so we need to activate that State Creator tool by clicking the button on the toolbar. To freeze the configuration on q 10click on q 10 once, then click the Freeze button.

After processing the second ait was in q Create a transition on b from q 1 to q 2. Notice that two of the configurations are highlighted red, indicating they were rejected.

Although we titorial only removing configurations that are about to be rejected, we can remove any configurations for any purpose, and the simulator will stop stepping through input on those configurations. For now, type “aaaabb” in the dialog box and press Enter. This concludes the walkthrough, although there is an appendix noting a few more features that JFLAP supports.
