We study a problem of efficient utilisation of extra memory space in real-time string matching. We propose, for any constant ε > 0, a real-time string matching algorithm claiming O(mε) extra space, where m is the size of a pattern. All previously known real-time string matching algorithms use Ω(m) extra space.
