We propose in this article a new practical algorithm for inferring $\mu$-distinguishable stochastic deterministic regular languages. We prove that this algorithm will infer, with high probability, an automaton isomorphic to the target when given a polynomial number of examples. We discuss the links between the error function used to evaluate the inferred model and the learnability of the model class in a PAC like framework.
