Dragon book,section 3.9,title: State Minimization in Lexical Analyzers,states
Table-Compression Methods (4-array next-check-base-default representation)
which is default method for transition table representation in Lex.

Can anybody tell me what other table compression methods does lex or flex use ?
Is there any good article or paper on it ?

Thanks in advance,
