JFLAP is a popular Java program for experimenting with finite state machines,
Turing machines and other concepts from Formal Languages and Automata Theory.
Version 7 of JFLAP can export JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, or SVG images. JFLAP2TikZ is
a groovy script that converts a JFLAP jff file representing a finite automaton,
pushdown automaton, or Turing machine into a LaTeX file depicting the automaton
graphically using TikZ.
To use JFLAP2TikZ you will need Java installed. Additionally, you may find it
useful to have Groovy installed as well. You will need to download either
jflap2tikz.jar (if you only have Java installed) or jflap2tikz.groovy (if you
also have groovy installed).
JFLAP2TikZ is invoked from the command line with:
java -jar jflap2tikz.jar -i example.jff
groovy jflap2tikz.groovy -i example.jff
In the above cases the output will be written to the console. Use the -h option
to see the full usage information, which is also given below.
usage: jflap2tikz [options]
-d,--accepting-distance <distance> Distance, in pt, between the circles of an
accepting state (default is 2)
-g,--grid <size> Round positions so that they are on a
grid. If a size is given it sets the
spacing of the grid (default is 20.0)
-h,--help Show usage information and quit
-i,--input-file <filename> Name of a JFLAP jff file representing a
finite automaton, pushdown automaton, or
Turing machine. If a file is not given
standard input will be used.
-l,--arrow-length <length> Length of arrows in points (default is 9)
-o,--output-file <filename> Name of a file for writing output. If this
file already exists it will be
-r,--rotate Rotate labels along edges
-s,--scale <x> 1 pixel in JFLAP = x points in LaTeX
(default is 1.0)
-w,--arrow-width <width> Width of arrows in points (default is 6)
