JFLAP Version 7.0
JFLAP is software for experimenting with formal languages topics including nondeterministic finite automata, nondeterministic pushdown automata, multi-tape Turing machines, several types of grammars, parsing, and L-systems. In addition to constructing and testing examples for these, JFLAP allows one to experiment with construction proofs from one form to another, such as converting an NFA to a DFA to a minimal state DFA to a regular expression or regular grammar.

New Linz book out that includes a CD with JFLAP
exercises. Introduction to Formal Languages
and Automata, fifth edition
Note, we have worked closedly with Linz over the past several years so JFLAP fits nicely with the Linz book. Eventually we hope to publish a textbook with JFLAP integrated in...
New items in JFLAP include added zooming to the editor pane, added an undo button, saving in various image files formats, can parse a range of values on transitions [0-9], and can adjust placement of transitions. The JFLAP source is also available.
New items in JFLAP include automatically adding a trap state to a DFA, reading input strings from a file, and identifying grammers. This version of JFLAP needs to be run in Java 1.5 or higher.
There are a few new items or modified items in JFLAP 6.3. New items include:
Announced Oct, 12, 2007 at FIE 2007, JFLAP 6.1 is recognized as a finalist candidate in the NEEDS Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Courseware competition. Here is the press release and the submission packet .
See the Slides and movie demo (.avi) of JFLAP presented at the award ceremony.
The Needs Premier Award is in the process of changing its host and is now being hosted at Engineering Pathway . For current information on this award, please check the Engineering Pathway site.
There are several new items or modified items in JFLAP 6.2. New items include:
JFLAP 6.1 is now available - Basically version 6.0 with
some bug fixes. JFLAP 6.0 was an updated version of JFLAP with
pumping lemma, moore and mealy machines, multiple run for grammars,
grading for multiple files, Turing machine building blocks, etc.
See the Tutorial which describes the new features of JFLAP 6.0 in more detail.

Note JFLAP version 4.0b10 and later changes the way JFLAP saves files (xml format) and requires Java 1.4 or higher. If you have old JFLAP files (pre version 4.0b10), you will first need to use 4.0b10 to convert those files. Then you can use the most recent version of JFLAP.
