fsaparse - parse a word-acceptor automaton file
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
On success, fsafparse() returns 1. On failure, it returns 0.
getwordlist(3), getmatlist(3), fgetmatlist(3),
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.
