Tools to perform finite state machine path analysis for students are typically standalone applications. They offer little documentation and are not intuitive. Pathfinder is a Windows console application that allows the use of Microsoft Visio and Excel products to be used for drawing and determining the paths in a finite sate machine. The use of Microsoft Office tools allows the user to the ability to perform the task of analysis using applications with which most are familiar.
