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.

Thus, the simulator now has four configurations. View Trace brings up a separate window that shows the trace of the slected input.

You can also load the inputs from file delimited by white space. Next, click on the state q 3. As 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.

To select more than one state or block at once, choose the attribute editor, click on empty space, and drag the mouse. To return to the Editor window, select File: This should bring up a new window that allows you to create and edit an FA. With that configuration frozen, as you click Step to step through the configuration on q 3the frozen configuration remains the same. To delete q 3first select the Deletor tool on the toolbar.


Press Enter to continue to the next input string. To step through input on an NFA, select Input: Next, we know that strings in our language must end with a odd number of b ‘s. To select a tool, click on the corresponding icon with your mouse. 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. When a tool is selected, it is shaded, as the Attribute Editor tool is above.

Building Your First Finite Automaton

This will clear all the current configurations and restart the simulation. Next, click on the canvas in different locations to create states. Next, let’s create a final state.

Let’s take a look at this NFA, which can be accessed through ex1. Notice that two of the configurations are highlighted red, indicating they were rejected. We also see that q 1 is nondeterministic because two of its outgoing transitions are on the same symbol, a. 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:. Click once on each of the four configurations to select them, then click Remove. 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. To move the selected states as a group, click and drag any of them. It will have a double outline, indicating that it is the final state.


Next, click on q 0 on the canvas. Thus, there is only one accepting configuration. Arbitrarily, we decide that q 0 will be our initial state.

A new tab will appear displaying the automaton on the left pane, and an input table on the right:. Highlight Nondeterminism from the menu bar:. This concludes the walkthrough, although there is an appendix noting a few more features that JFLAP supports. Preferences in the main menu to change the symbol representing the empty string.

Secondly, if the FA has any transitions that read tutogial empty string for input, it jf,ap also considered an NFA.

Clicking Step two more times will reveal that the configuration on q 3 is not accepted either. When a configuration is frozen, it will be tinted a darker shade of purple:.
