We introduce a general framework which is suitable to capture an essence of compressed pattern matching according to various dictionary based compressions, and propose a compressed pattern matching algorithm for the frame-work. The goal is to find all occurrences of a pattern in a text without decompression, which is one of the most active topics in string matching. Our framework includes such compression methods as Lempel-Ziv family, (LZ77, LZSS, LZ78, LZW), byte-pair encoding, and the static dictionary based method. Technically, our pattern matching algorithm extends that for LZW compressed text presented by Amir, Benson and Farach.
