Example text

The attendant preprocessing requirements are slightly more onerous, but are still linear in m. The method employed exploits knowledge of which pattern substrings matched which text substrings at previous trial positions, and uses the simpler form of the shift-table definition. There are many other variations of the Boyer-Moore approach to string match­ ing. One of the more notable of these, the Boyer-Moore-Horspool algorithm, which involves simplified preprocessing, is described in the next section.

If this symbol occurs somewhere in the text, at position i, say, then the only possible potential match position involving y< is such that xm is aligned with y{. Thus, if a mismatch occurs at yt = x m , then the pattern may be shifted all the way past Vi for the next trial. This then aligns xt with j/«+i and xm with yi+m, giving a skip value of m. This case is illustrated in the following example for pattern ABCDE. A description of the second case, namely that in which xm does occur more than once in the pattern, shall be postponed until after the other major difference of the Horspool algorithm has been examined.

Knuth demonstrated that to locate all the occurrences of the pattern, the BoyerMoore algorithm performs 0(n + rm) symbol comparisons, where r is the number of times the pattern appears in the text (Knuth, Morris and Pratt, 1977). He also showed that when the pattern is absent from the text, a total of 6n symbol comparisons is required. 5: Boyer-Moore string matching Boyer-Moore algorithm is sublinear, requiring about n/m symbol comparisons on average. A variant of the Boyer-Moore algorithm developed by Apostolico and Giancarlo (1986) finds all of the occurrences of the pattern, performing at most 2n - m + 1 symbol comparisons.
