I am reading a file that is filled with hex numbers. I have to identify a particular pattern, say "aaad" (without quotes) from it. Every time I see the pattern, I generate some data to some other file.
This would be a very common case in designing programs - parsing and looking for a particular pattern.
I have designed it as a Finite State Machine and structured structured it in C using
switch-case to change states. This was the first implementation that occured to me.
- DESIGN: Are there some better designs possible?
- IMPLEMENTATION: Do you see some problems with using a switch case as I mentioned?
