# CTAN update: Finomaton

Date: July 17, 2006 3:23:38 PM CEST

On Sun, 16 Jul 2006, Markus Triska submitted an update to the
Finomaton
package.
Finomaton allows users to comfortably draw and typeset finite
state machines (automata). The resulting graphs can be exported
to plain MetaPost and subsequently be included in TeX and LaTeX
documents for excellent typesetting quality. Contrary to many
other packages, the mouse can be used to interactively move
objects around. States are magnetic to facilitate connection,
and any TeX command can be embedded in the labels of states and
lines.

## Finomaton – Comfortably draw and typeset finite state machines

Finomaton is a TCL program that allows users to comfortably draw and typeset finite state machines (automata). The resulting graphs can be exported to plain METAPOST and subsequently be included in TeX and LaTeX documents for excellent typesetting quality. In contrast to many other packages, the mouse can be used to interactively move objects around. States are magnetic to facilitate connection, and any TeX command can be embedded in the labels of states and lines.
