I'm passionate about coding and researching the history of technology as well as exploring where technology is leading.

I used to work in flight simulation doing both hardware implementation (electrical design, wiring), web development (design, development, webmaster), as well as software development (desktop development in C#).

I'm a big fan of both using and contributing to Open source projects.

I am the creator of the pypreprocessor library that can be found on PYPI as well as Google code.

OK, I think I see. If the first match fails then it backtracks to where it can evaluate the second (hence non-deterministic). I guess I have been mixing up NFA/DFA all along. That means my answer should outline how to convert the current NFA to a DFA. Guess I'm still a FSM noob. BTW +1 good answer.

comment Constructing a Finite State Automaton
Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the Op need a valid NFA before he can determine a DFA? In this case, the NFA is invalid because it's impossible to determine whether the starting input is an employee_name or just a string in state 1 because [A-Z] is a subset of [A-Za-z0-9].
