What is JFLAP?
is a tool for visualizing and experimenting with various
computational models, including those we'll be using in our
is produced by
Susan H. Rodger
at Duke Univeristy.
Running JFLAP from a unix lab machine
To launch JFLAP from one of the unix lab machines, just type
at the command line.
Running JFLAP from your PC (through your Linux VM)
To run JFLAP on your PC you need two things: the Java virtual
machine and the JFLAP program. I will assume you are using
your CS Department VM, in which case you already have the JVM.
So, to get JFLAP do the following in your CS Department Ubuntu VM:
- cd ~/bin
- scp mich302csd01u.academy.usna.edu:/home/scs/wcbrown/bin/JFLAP .
- chmod +rx JFLAP
And that's all it takes! From that point on, you should be
able to type
to run JFLAP.
