This demonstration will provide a quick introduction to the FIRE Station [1]. FIRE Station is a “workstation” environment for manipulating FInite automata/ transducers and Regular Expressions. It is built on top of the FIRE Works, a computational toolkit (with a programming interface only) for constructing, optimizing, manipulating, and using all sorts of regular language and regular relation objects. Both software systems are in a rather early stage, but the key insights are already apparent.
