This paper considers the Shift-And approach to the problem of pattern matching in LZW compressed text, and gives a new algorithm that solves it. The algorithm is indeed fast when a pattern length is at most 32, or the word length. After an O(m +| Σ|) time and O(| Σ|) space preprocessing of a pattern, it scans an LZW compressed text in O(n + r) time and reports all occurrences of the pattern, where n is the compressed text length, m is the pattern length, and r is the number of the pattern occurrences. Experimental results show that it runs approxi- mately 1.5 times faster than a decompression followed by a simple search using the Shift-And algorithm. Moreover, the algorithm can be extended to the generalized pattern matching, to the pattern matching with k mismatches, and to the multiple pattern matching, like the Shift-And algorithm..
