I'll provide them on Monday. As far as I remember, there was no
particular issue on the Frama-C side.

Ok. A few word saying that in the INSTALL might be useful.

Ok, good to know.

Yes, I've seen it just after sending this email. :-) 

Apparently, there are two variants of haRVey (FOL and SAT). Within
Frama-C context, is there any advantage of one over the other?

Yes, I already had a look at this ESCJava2/license.html page in the
past. The license is clearly not suitable for use as Free Software.

Anyway, Simplify is apparently dead: "We do not plan on doing any
development on Simplify, as the world of first-order theorem provers has
changed quite a bit over the past decade or so. Instead, we are working
on integrating ESC/Java3 with new-generation SMT-LIB provers."

Ok, I'll give it a try. Thank you for the pointer.

Many thanks for the detailed answers,
