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.

Notice that two of the configurations are highlighted red, indicating they were rejected.

A dialog box prompting you for input will appear. Next, let’s create a final state. When you are tutoria, click Run Inputs to test your FA on all the input strings. To define it as the final state, right-click on the state and click the checkbox Final.

Click and drag the note to move it. Click Step to process the next symbol of input. Next, click on q 0 on the canvas. Preferences in the main menu to change the symbol representing the empty string. Although rejected configurations will remove themselves in the next step, we can also remove configurations that have not been rejected. Looking at the tracebacks of the rejected configurations, we can tell that any configurations jf,ap are in q 11 or q 6 and whose next input symbol is a will be rejected.

It will become a solid color when selected, instead of the slightly graded color. When a tool is selected, it is shaded, as the Attribute Editor tool is above.

Next, tutorisl will describe how to delete states and transitions. You will notice q 1 becomes the shaded state in the NFA, and that the configuration icon changes, reflecting the fact that the first a has been processed. Click on the icon for the rejected configuration with state q 11and click Trace.

First, let’s create several states. Multiple Run from the menu bar. To create such a transition, first select the Transition Creator tool from the toolbar.

Tuforial processing the second ait was in q Similarly, to delete a transition, simply click on the input symbol of the transition when in Deletor mode. Next, click on the canvas in different locations to create states.

With that configuration frozen, as you click Step to tutirial through the configuration on q 3the frozen configuration remains the same. Lastly, we know that only strings that end with an odd number of b ‘s should be accepted. 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.

The configuration icon shows the current state of the configuration in the top left hand corner, and input on the white tape below.

When a configuration is frozen, it will be tinted a darker shade of purple:. Secondly, if the FA has any transitions that read the empty string for input, it is also considered an NFA. We know strings in our language can start with jjflap ‘s, so, the initial state must have an outgoing transition on a.


View Trace brings up a separate window that shows the trace of the slected input. Type “a” in the text box and press Enter. A text box should appear over the state:.

JFLAP: Building a Finite Automaton

We are not very sure how many states we will need, so we created four states. For now, type “aaaabb” in the dialog box and press Enter. A new tab will appear displaying the automaton on the left pane, and an input table on the right:. Tutorjal the simulator tried to process the next a on this configuration, it realized that there are no outgoing a transitions from q 11 and thus rejected the configuration. Your simulator will now look like this:.

To return to the Editor window, select File: Jlfap should give us a pop-up menu that looks like this:. To deselect them, click anywhere else. As the FA should accept uflap that end with an odd number of b ‘s, create another transition on b from q 2 to q 1.

You can also load the inputs from file delimited by white space. To select a tool, click on the corresponding icon with your mouse.
