I wanted to know if anyone can help with a simple question. I have a
transition table that I had to transform into an NFA diagram (with
nodes, and paths...). I got that part ok. Now I have to transform
the NFA into a DFA. My question is what will the DFA look like? Will
it be another diagram, or a table, or can it be either one? Can you
suggest somewhere to go to see an actual DFA example?

Thank you so much.
I really like this site, it's so hard to find info on such a tough topic
like compilers.
[You can draw a DFA as a diagram or you can write out the state table.
The Dragon Book covers all this stuff. -John]
