This is a release of the regex archive which supercedes the regex directory
of the comp.compilers archive. The software included:

      DFA: A RE -> DFA conversion demo utility
      NFA: A RE -> NFA conversion demo utility
      REX: A large functional superset of GREP, with full range of
Boolean operations and the "interleave product" operator.
      FSC: An implementation of the "finite state classifier" solution
to the regular language accquisition problem.

The conversion methods are purely algebraic and the software are nothing
more than implementations of routines for performing the appropriate
algebraic computations. Extensive details on the requisite background
is included with the source.
