FLAT - A finite automata base class
N/A - this file is really just a stub of a super class. Use FLAT::FA instead.
This module is a base finite automata used by NFA and DFA to encompass common functions. It is probably of no use other than to organize the DFA and NFA modules.

Currently, all states are stored as labels. There is also no integrity checking for consistency among the start, final, and set of all states.
I haven't hit any yet :)

This suite of modules started off as a homework assignment for a compiler class I took for my MS in computer science at the University of Southern Mississippi. It then became the basis for my MS research. and thesis.
Mike Rosulek has joined the effort, and is heading up the rewrite of Perl FLaT, which will soon be released as FLaT 1.0.
This code is released under the same terms as Perl.
