Adaptive Pattern Matching on Binary Data

  title={Adaptive Pattern Matching on Binary Data},
  author={Per Gustafsson and Konstantinos Sagonas},
Pattern matching is an important operation in functional programs. So far, pattern matching has been investigated in the context of structured terms. This paper presents an approach to extend pattern matching to terms without (much of a) structure such as binaries which is the kind of data format that network applications typically manipulate. After introducing a notation for matching binary data against patterns, we present an algorithm that constructs a tree automaton from a set of binary… CONTINUE READING
