Since you're asking on R-help :

 The R package "VLMC" (variable length markov chains) works with
 such "finite alphabet" time-series and has been applied to such
 successfully in the past.


It contains the following


  Buhlmann P. and Wyner A. (1998) Variable Length Markov Chains. 
  Annals of Statistics 27, 480--513.

  Mächler M. and Bühlmann P. (2004) Variable Length Markov Chains:
  Methodology, Computing, and Software. 
  J. Computational and Graphical Statistics 2, 435--455.
