We can double-check by resetting the simulator.

Although we 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.

Looking at their input, we also know that only aa was processed. Click Step to process the next symbol of input. Thus, the outgoing transition on a from q 0 loops back to itself.

Clicking Step two more times will reveal that the configuration on q 3 is not accepted either. Simply click on Load Inputs and load the file to add additional input strings into multi-run pane. Next, we know that strings in our language must end with a odd number of b ‘s. To do so we need to tutorila that State Creator tool by clicking the button on the toolbar.

If the transition on b was to the initial tutorila q 0strings would not have to be of the tutoriwl a m b n ; strings such as ababab would also be accepted. To change the text simply click in the note, select where you want to start typing, and type your jf,ap.


As the next input symbol is a jflal, we can tell that the configurations that are currently in q 6 and q 11 will be rejected. You might notice that the q 3 is not used and can be deleted.

Click on the icon for the rejected configuration with state q 11and click Trace.

JFLAP: Building a Finite Automaton

Click Step again to process the next input symbol. To deselect them, click anywhere else. Let’s take a look at this NFA, which can be accessed through ex1.

Looking at the tracebacks of the rejected configurations, we can tell that any configurations that are in q 11 or q 6 and whose next input symbol is a will be rejected. The traceback shows the configuration after processing each input symbol.

JFLAP can help with that. 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.

JFLAP Tutorial

The results, Accept or Reject are displayed in the Result column. The simulator will now step through input as usual. 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 tutkrial.

Thus, the transition cannot be to q 0and it must be to q 2. To proceed with the frozen configuration, select it and click Thaw. The transition between two tutlrial should look like this:. Thus, the simulator now has four configurations. When a tool is selected, it is shaded, as the Attribute Editor tool is above.

Dismiss Tab from the menu bar. Lastly, we know that only strings that end with an odd number of b ‘s should be accepted. Ordinarily, you would enter the input you wish to tutorrial through here. You can also load the input file instead of typing the string.


Next, click on the state q 3.

If we click Step again, we will see that the last configuration is rejected. This should bring up a new window that allows you to create and edit an FA. This concludes the walkthrough, although there is an appendix noting a few more features that JFLAP supports. To select more than one state or block at once, choose the attribute editor, click on empty space, and drag the mouse. Next, let’s create a final state.

If we click Reset and step all the configurations, we will find that there is, indeed, only one accepting configuration. Click once on each of the four configurations to select them, then click Remove. Enter “b” in the textbox the same way you entered “a” for the previous transition.

We are not very sure how many states we will need, so we created jvlap states. Now that you’ve completed your FA, you might want to test it to see if it really accepts strings from the language. Click Step again to process the next a. For now, type “aaaabb” in the dialog box and press Enter.

For example, if we are in the State Creator mode, clicking on the canvas will create new states. To step through input on an NFA, select Input: A white arrowhead appreas to the left of q 0 to indicate that it is the inital state.
