As part of my work on my masters thesis I need information on how Finite
State Machines (FSMs) are used in complers. I don't meen that they are
used for constructing the lexical analyser, but rather things like how
they are implemented, how large the state-set is etc.
If someone has some information on the subject or could point me to some
other source I'd be grateful.
Some of you might be interested in a program I have written as part of the
thesis work. PetC as it is known is a program for simulating and
visualisation of FSMs. Its intended for teaching and therefor have little
interest for someone who want a tool for building compilers. It can be
found at: http://www.dsv.su.se/~h-bergst/petc/petc.html
