Abstract : Graphic input-output devices are becoming increasingly popular as the most natural and direct on-line interface between the user and a computer. In order to make direct graphic input possible, it is necessary to have a pattern recognition scheme. As the pattern sets to be recognized are different for different applications, a linguistic approach appears appealing because of its flexibility. An algorithm is presented that builds up an efficient grammar for different classes of pattern sets in a uniform and optimal way. The data structure appropriate for efficient implementation of the algorithm is also suggested. (Author)
