Class FiniteAutomaton

  • Direct Known Subclasses:

    public class FiniteAutomaton
    extends Object
    Class for modelling finite automata.

    This class models basic FA behaviour. More specialised behaviour is implemented by subclassing this.

      • addNode

        public org.biojava.utils.automata.FiniteAutomaton.Node addNode​(boolean terminal)
        Add a node to the FA.
        terminal - Is the Node terminal?
      • getNodes

        public org.biojava.utils.automata.FiniteAutomaton.NodeSet getNodes()
        get all Nodes within this instance.
      • getTransitions

        public Set getTransitions()
        retrieve Set of all transitions in instance.
      • createNodeSet

        public org.biojava.utils.automata.FiniteAutomaton.NodeSet createNodeSet()
      • toString

        public String toString()
        dumps internal data of Nodes and Transitions that describe this FiniteAutomaton. It is not possible to dump it as a regex as there are FA that cannot be expressed as a regex.
