[Frama-c-discuss] bug with loop invariant, wrong loop invariant gets proven

Hello again,

I would like to clarify something:

Given, that
while(++i != length)

is equivalent to the following:

and the loop invariant requires that i < length,
     loop invariant 0 <= i < length;
while(true) {
    if (i == length) break;

Why is i allowed to become equal to length?

I remember the ACSL document state, that abnormal termination with a "break" 
it is not required that the loop invariant

That leaves only one question, are both loops truly equivalent.

Again, Thank you for your help.
