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.

From the pop-up menu, select the checkbox Initial. When a configuration is frozen, it will be tinted a darker shade of purple:. We can test our idea out by freezing the other configuration. Click Step again to process the next input symbol. This should bring up a new window that allows you to create and edit an FA. For instance, with the toolbar above, we are now in the Attribute Editor mode.

Building Your First Finite Automaton

As the next input symbol is awe can tell that the configurations that are currently in q 6 and q 11 will be rejected. Create a transition on b from q 1 to q 2. Similarly, to delete a transition, simply click on the input symbol of the transition when in Deletor mode.

Click outside the note to get rid of the cursor. A text box should appear over the state:. An accepting configuration is colored green:. When you are done, click Run Inputs to test your FA on all the input strings.


Looking at their input, we also know that only aa was processed. If we click Reset and step all the configurations, we will find that there is, indeed, only one accepting configuration. Next, click on the state q 3. To move the selected states as a group, click and drag any of them. You will find that four states are shaded instead of one, and there are four configurations instead of one.

That is, we will build a DFA that recognizes that language of any number of a ‘s followed by any odd number of b ‘s. You can also load the input file instead of typing the string.

JFLAP: Building a Finite Automaton

Preferences in the main menu to change the symbol representing the empty string. Selecting the tool puts you jfla the corresponding mode. A white arrowhead appreas to the left of q 0 to indicate that it is the inital state. To do so we need to activate that State Creator tool by clicking the button on the toolbar.

These modes will be described in more detail shortly. As the FA should accept strings that end with an odd number of b ‘s, create another transition on b from q 2 to q 1.

Click Step to process the next symbol of input. Your FA is now a full, working FA! For example, if we are in the State Creator mode, clicking on the canvas will create new states. The simulator will now step through input as usual.

We also know that it can start with any number of a ‘s, which means that the FA should be in the same state after processing input of any number of a ‘s. Enter “b” in the textbox the turorial way you entered “a” for the previous transition. To delete q 3first select the Deletor tool on the toolbar.


JFLAP Tutorial

This concludes the walkthrough, although there is an appendix noting a few more features that JFLAP supports. To proceed with the frozen configuration, select it and click Thaw. The simulator will no longer step these configurations. Your editor window should look something like this:.

If we click Step again, we will tutoriql that the last configuration is rejected. A bounding box appears and all states and blocks within the box are selected, their color now blue. Next, we know that strings in our language must end with a odd number of b ‘s. From q 1 uttorial, the NFA took both a transitions to q 2 and q 9. The processed input is displayed in gray, and the unprocessed input is black. This is because the machine is nondeterministic.

You can also load the inputs from file delimited by white space. Click once on each of the four configurations to select them, then click Remove.

From the traceback, we tutoriaal tell that that configuration started at q 0 and took the transition to q 1 after processing the first a.

Thus, the outgoing transition on a from q 0 loops back to itself. Highlight Nondeterminism from the menu bar:.
