Hi,

Came across a paper which suggests some
modifications to make string matching faster.

http://www.silicondefense.com/software/acbm/speed_of_snort_06_21_2001.pdf

Did snort do something like this to speed up the
string matching ?
(The paper is quite old ..so i dont know if snort moved
on to much faster algorithms)

Any pointers...

thanks
ashley
