The processed input is displayed in gray, and the unprocessed input is black. To select a configuration, click on it. When a tool is selected, it is shaded, as the Attribute Editor tool is above. Clicking Step two more times will reveal that the configuration on q 3 is not accepted either. Tuforial following are pictures of the finite automaton used earlier, ex1.

When a configuration is frozen, it will be tinted tutogial darker shade of purple:. This should bring up a new window that allows you to create and edit an FA. Click on the icon for the rejected configuration with state q 11and jfflap Trace. At any point in the simulation, we can restart the entire simulation process by clicking Reset.

A new tab will appear displaying the automaton on the left pane, and an input table on the right:. Next, we know that strings in our language must end with a odd number of b ‘s. Click Step again to process the next input symbol. First, let’s create several states.

Although rejected configurations will remove themselves in the next step, we can also remove configurations tutorizl have not been rejected. Preferences in the main menu to change the symbol representing the empty string. Now that you’ve completed your FA, you might want to test it to see if it really accepts strings from the language.


Click outside the note to get rid of the cursor. Multiple Run from the menu bar. Although jf,ap are 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.

These modes will be described in more detail shortly. Thus, the simulator now has four configurations. When you are done, click Run Inputs to test your FA jdlap all the input strings.

A white arrowhead appreas to the left of q 0 to indicate tutofial it is the inital state. This is because the machine is nondeterministic. Click Step to process the next symbol of input. To select a tool, click on the corresponding icon with your mouse.

Arbitrarily, we select q 1 as our final state. Click and drag the note to move it. 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. To move the selected states as a group, click and drag any of them.

Thus, we know that q 1 has an outgoing transition on bthat it cannot loop back to q 1.

The results, Accept or Reject are displayed in the Result column. When you are done, it should look like this:. Dismiss Tab from the menu bar. 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.

As the next input symbol is awe can tell that the configurations that are currently in q 6 and q 11 will be rejected.

We can test our idea out by freezing the other configuration. To select more than one state or block at once, choose the attribute editor, click on empty space, and drag the mouse. To create such a transition, first select the Transition Creator tool from the toolbar.

The configuration mflap shows the current state of the configuration in the top left hand corner, and input on the white tape below. For a full tutorial on how to use these features, and to see a description of the built-in layout commands, feel free to read the layout command tutorial.


Uflap define it as the final state, right-click on the state and click the checkbox Final. You will find that four states are shaded instead of one, and there are four configurations instead of one. A new tab will appear displaying the automaton at the top of the window, and configurations at the bottom.

Secondly, if the FA has any transitions that read the empty string for input, it is also considered an NFA. This will clear all the current configurations and restart the simulation. Next, click and hold on q 0and drag the mouse to q 1 jflzp release the mouse button. For instance, with the toolbar above, we are now in the Attribute Editor mode.

Enter “b” in the textbox the same way you entered “a” for the previous transition. Simply click on Load Inputs and load the file to add additional input strings into multi-run pane. Type “a” in the text box and press Enter.

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. Ttorial, click on the canvas in different locations to create states. Press Enter to continue to the next input string. To do so we need to activate that State Creator tool by clicking the button on the toolbar.

The simulator will no longer step these configurations.
