Summary description: converts a JFlap ﬁle into a LaTeX ﬁle depicting the automaton
using TikZ
License type: other-free
Announcement text:

JFlap is an excellent piece of software for experimenting with finite state machines, Turing machines and exploring many aspects of the theory of computation. JFlap2TikZ is a groovy script that converts a JFlap jff file representing a finite automaton, push down automaton, or Turing machine to LaTeX file depicting the automaton graphically using TikZ.

## jflap2tikz – Convert JFlap file into a LaTeX file depicting the automaton using TikZ

JFlap is an excellent piece of software for experimenting with
finite state machines, Turing machines and for exploring many aspects
of the theory of computation. JFLAP2TikZ is a script that converts
a JFlap ‘`jff`’ file representing a finite automaton, push
down automaton, or Turing machine to LaTeX file depicting the
automaton graphically using TikZ.
