2. How to use jsCYK

2.1 Installation

This algorithm can be used in the browser or any other JavaScript environment. To use it in the browser, type:

<script src=""></script>

2.2 Usage

To use jsCYK, you need to define a startstate, the grammar and the word. This is an example for it:

var startstate = "S"

grammar_yt_vid = {

word = "abacba"

Next, you need to create an object of the jsCYK class, which includes the startstate and the grammar.

cyk = new CYK(grammar_yt_vid, startstate)

To check whether a word is part of the language or not, use this:

cyk.checkWord(word) //Returns true or false

If you want to see the table that is generated as a part of this algorithm, use this:
