JFLAP History

History of JFLAP:

JFLAP started as a series of tools at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute around 1990, with students working under the direction of Susan Rodger. The JFLAP project moved to Duke University in 1994 when Rodger moved there. Following is a list of students who worked on JFLAP and/or related tools throughout the years and the year they started working on tools.
