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.

When a tool is selected, it is shaded, as the Attribute Editor tool is above.

JFLAP: Building a Finite Automaton

Type “a” in the text box and press Enter. The processed input is displayed in gray, and the unprocessed input is black. To select a configuration, click on it.

This will clear all the current configurations and restart the simulation. This should give us a pop-up menu that looks like this:. If we click Step again, we will see that the last configuration is rejected. To freeze the configuration on q 10click on q 10 once, then click the Freeze jflapp. Clicking Clear deletes all the input strings, while Enter Lambda enters the empty string at the cursor.

The transition between two states should look like this:. Next, click on q 0 jtlap the canvas. Now that you’ve completed your FA, you might want to test it to see if it really accepts strings from the language. The simulator will no longer step these configurations. Click on the icon for the rejected configuration with state q 11and click Trace.

A new tab will appear displaying the automaton on the left pane, and an input table on the right:. Secondly, if the FA has any transitions that read the empty string for input, it is also considered an NFA. Click Step another three times to find an accepting configuration. First, let’s create several states.


To see all the nondeterministic states in the NFA, select Test: The different modes dictate the way mouse clicks affect the machine.

The results, Accept or Reject are displayed in the Result column. After processing the second ait was in q For example, if we are in the State Creator mode, clicking on the canvas will create new states. The configuration icon shows the current state of the configuration in the top left hand corner, and input on the white tape below. Click and drag the note to move it. With that configuration frozen, as you click Step to step through the configuration on q 3the frozen configuration remains the same.

For instance, with the toolbar above, we are now in the Attribute Editor mode. We are not very sure how many states we will need, so we created four states. These modes will be described in more detail shortly. Arbitrarily, we select q 1 as our final state. Multiple Run from the menu bar. We can test our idea out by freezing the other configuration.

You will find that four states are shaded instead of one, and there are four configurations instead of one. From the traceback, we can tell that jflzp configuration started at q 0 and took the transition to q 1 after processing the first a. A text box should appear over the state:. Thus, the outgoing transition on a from q 0 loops back to itself.

Building Your First Finite Automaton

JFLAP will now let you apply predefined graph layout commands to your graph, which can help with a more aesthetically pleasing graph. It should look something like this:. The traceback shows the configuration after processing each input symbol. For a full tutorial on how to use these features, and jclap see a description of the built-in layout commands, feel free to read the layout command tutorial.


Click outside the note to get rid of the cursor. You can tutoriwl load the inputs from file delimited by white space. 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. Fjlap any point in the simulation, we can restart the entire simulation process by clicking Reset.

Next, we will describe how to delete states and transitions. Although we are only removing configurations that are about to be rejected, we can remove any configurations for tugorial purpose, and the simulator will stop stepping through input on those configurations.

We also see that q 1 is nondeterministic because two of its outgoing transitions are on the same symbol, a. Next, click on the canvas in different locations to create states.

To select more than one state or block at once, choose the attribute editor, click on empty space, and drag the mouse. You can also load the input file instead of typing the string. To create a transition from our initial state q 0 to our final state q 1first ensure that the Transition Creator tool is selected on the toolbar.

This uflap because the machine is nondeterministic. For now, type “aaaabb” in the dialog box and press Enter. To do so, select Input: When a configuration is frozen, it will be tinted a darker shade of purple:. Thus, the transition cannot be to q 0and it must be to q 2.
