NAME

       fsaparse - parse a word-acceptor automaton file

SYNOPSIS

       #include "wa.h"

       fsafparse(fp, fsa)
         FILE *fp;
         Fsa *fsa;

DESCRIPTION

       fsafparse  parses  a  word-acceptor automaton file in the format described by DEAGL ("Data
       Exchange for Automata and Groups Language") (but see the BUGS section below).   fp  should
       be  a pointer to an open file containing the automaton.  fsa should be a pointer to an Fsa
       struture as defined in "fsa.h".  Upon return, the automaton will have  been  written  into
       this structure.

RETURN VALUES

       On success, fsafparse() returns 1.  On failure, it returns 0.

SEE ALSO

       getwordlist(3), getmatlist(3), fgetmatlist(3),
       getmatlist(1), automata(1)

BUGS

       fsafparse  is  meant  specifically for use with getwordlist(3) and getmatlist(3).  It does
       not recognize the full language described by DEAGL.  It only recognizes that  part  of  it
       which  was  present in the word-acceptor files that I was working with when I wrote it.  I
       think this may be sufficient for all word-acceptor automata, but I am not  sure  of  this.
       Please let me know if you find word-acceptor files for which this doesn't work.
