FAMS Specification Document The FAMS (Finite Automata Manipulation System) is a prototype program for manipulating Non- deterministic (NFAs) and Deterministic Finite Automata (DFAs). Its current functional capabilities are the following: 1. Input one or more NFA descriptions( M ) from an ASCII file specified by the user. 2. Convert each NFA to its equivalent DFA ( DFA(M) )using the power-set construction; only the reachable states of the DFA are generated. 3. Convert each power-set DFA to its minimal-state equivalent ( Min(DFA(M) ) 4. Output to an ASCII file specified by the user, M, DFA(M) and MIN(DFA(M)), for each M in the input file. Future versions of this system will have even more capabilities. Specifically, we plan to permit the user to interact with through a GUI and be able to compute DFAs that represent the Union, Intersection, Complement, Reverse (and other closure operations )applied to given DFAs already in memory. The Input and Output syntax with examples are given below. Creation Date: May 15, 1999 Page 1 Current Date: 04/29/09

FAMS Specification Document ====================================== INPUT FILE FORMAT ====================================== The input file can contain one or more NFA specifications given in a line-oriented format with the following syntax: (1) Optionally includes comment lines anywhere (# in col 1, rest of line is ignored). (2) Must end with a line having a $ in col. 1 (the rest of this line is ignored; this is a special comment). (3) MUST begin with the following set of declarations (order independent):
