L-FLAT - Logtalk Formal Language and Automata Toolkit

L-FLAT is a toolkit for teaching Formal Languages and Automata Theory.

L-FLAT supports the definition of alphabets, the definition of orders over alphabet symbols, the partial definition of languages using unit tests, and the definition of mechanisms, which implement language generators or language recognizers. Supported mechanisms include predicates, regular expressions, finite automata, context-free grammars, Turing machines, and push-down automata. The use of L-FLAT in an educational environment is enhanced by supporting Mooshak, a web application that features automatic grading of submitted programs.

Running L-FLAT

  1. Install Logtalk 3.36.0 or later version (https://logtalk.org/).

  2. Start Logtalk from the L-FLAT directory and type the query:

     | ?- {loader}.
    

Running L-FLAT Examples

To run all the examples provided with L-FLAT, start L-FLAT and type the query:

| ?- {lflat_examples(all)}.

To run a specific example, e.g. s131.lgt, type the query:

| ?- {lflat_examples(s131)}.
