Matching Multiple Patterns From Right to Left
Samuel W. Bent
Dartmouth PCS-TR90-143

Abstract:

We address the problem of matching multiple pattern strings against a text string. Just as the Aho-Corasick algorithm generalizes the Knuth-Morris-Pratt single-pattern algorithm to handle multiple patterns, we exhibit two generalizations of the Boyer-Moore algorithm to handle multiple patterns. In order to obtain worst-case time bounds better than quadratic, our algorithms remember some of the previous history of the matching.
