You mention Red/Black trees for C++ at the end there. Wouldn't that adversely affect the complexities? - Why wouldn't you use Finger Trees in C++? (there is a Masters theses floating around on the interwebs with an implementation of the 2-3 tree variant)Alec Taylorhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02267100414793689299noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-53539171292250710872012-12-18T09:54:07.769-08:002012-12-18T09:54:07.769-08:00Dan, I just published an article that expands on t...Dan, I just published an article that expands on the ideas from this blogpost and builds a Java library for incremental matching of multiple regular expressions: http://jkff.info/articles/ire (it was actually published in the Russian functional programming journal http://fprog.ru/ but I recently got around to finish the translation)jkffhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16923431648214439769noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-50978256649680987992009-01-29T15:55:00.000-08:002009-01-29T15:55:00.000-08:00Dan,i haven't read the fingertree papers, yet.

You can label the transitions of the automaton with output values that live in a monoid. Then you can do things like counting and minimisation while matching - eg. to count the number of lexems, or find the longest one, or find the longest string between a certain pair and so on.sigfpehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08096190433222340957noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-82607187900872752022009-01-25T01:43:00.001-08:002009-01-25T01:43:00.001-08:00Great post, as usual. :-)In other words, determini...Great post, as usual. :-)<BR/><BR/>In other words, deterministic finite state automata and thus regular expressions are actually monoid morphisms from the free monoid over the alphabet to a finite monoid, namely the monoid of endomorphisms on the states.<BR/><BR/>I finally remember this connection from a past automata & languages lesson.
