To do so, select Input: To select a tool, click on the corresponding icon with your mouse.

There are two options for the transtion: At any point in the simulation, we can restart the entire simulation process by clicking Reset. Click Step another three times to find an accepting configuration. The editor is divided into two basic areas: To select a configuration, click on it. Next, click and hold on q 0and drag the mouse to q jlfap and release the mouse button.

Highlight Nondeterminism from the menu bar:. The processed input is displayed in gray, and the unprocessed input is black. View Trace brings up a separate window that shows the trace of the slected input. 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.


For now, type “aaaabb” in the dialog box and press Enter. To define it to be our initial state, first select the Attribute Editor tool on the toolbar. Now that you’ve completed your FA, you might want to test it to see if it really accepts strings from the language.

This should bring up a new window that allows you to create and edit an FA. After processing the second ait was in q Multiple Run from the menu bar. You might notice that the q 3 is not used and can be deleted. If we click Step again, we will see that the last configuration is rejected.

When a tool is selected, it is shaded, as the Attribute Editor tool is above. Selecting the tool puts you in the corresponding mode. If the text box isn’t selected, press Tab to select it, then enter “a”.

A dialog box prompting you for input will appear. If the transition on b was to the initial state q 0strings would not have to be of the form a m b n ; strings such as ababab would also be accepted.

Arbitrarily, we decide that q 0 will be our initial state. Your simulator will now look like this:. This should give us a pop-up menu that looks like this:.

The simulator will now step through input as usual.

Now tutroial we are in Attribute Editor mode, right-click on q 0. JFLAP can help with that. However, we might be unsure that this is really the case, as we had removed some configurations. You can also load the inputs from file delimited by white space.


We can test our idea out by freezing the other configuration. Clicking Clear deletes all the input strings, while Enter Lambda enters the empty string at the cursor. Although we are only removing configurations that are about to be rejected, we can remove any configurations for any purpose, and the tutirial will stop stepping through input on those configurations.

To proceed with the frozen configuration, select it and click Thaw.

Notice that two of the configurations are highlighted red, indicating they were rejected. 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. An accepting configuration is colored green:.

These modes will be described in more detail shortly. Looking at their input, we also know that only aa was processed. Click and drag the note to move it.

It should look something like this:. Your FA is now a full, working FA!
