There is a way to convert regular expression to DFA (deterministic finite automata) which is to build a syntax tree and then compute first pos, last pos, follow pos, and then use a Transition technique to build DFA for that particular regular expression. But this case only works when operators in the regular expression are only . (Dot), * (star), | (or). I just want to know if the operators in the regular expression are like ?, , - and etc. Then can i convert regular expression to DFA just like above way?
Thanks in advance.
