I'm looking for a _good_ book on constructing finite state
machines. Of course, I am familier with the "Dragon Book" (Aho,
Hopcroft, and Ulman) but, I would like to find something that covers
implementation styles, issues, efficiency trade offs, techniques,
etc. a little more fully. Does such a book exist?
The "Dragon Book" basically only discusses things from the standpoint
of "Lex" and I am interested in getting state machines to do a lot
more than simply recognizing text (I want to transform it and perhaps
do some other things as well.) Furthermore, I am sure there are many
more implemenation issues that it does not cover that are perhaps
covered more fully elsewhere.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
