FA's are a restricted subset of a PDA mathematically, but practically speaking they are entirely a different animal. There are too many properties of them that are fundamentally different, including the fact that equivalency is undecidable for PDAs. Implementing FAs (meaning in this case, DFAs and NFAs) requires nothing more than an input stream. A PDA requires that and a stack. They both have transitions, but they operate on them differently.

Edit: What I mean is the LR parse tables are literally built through the creation of stackless FAs in addition to the PDA that drives the whole thing

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
