[Frama-c-discuss] wp calculus


Thanks for your interest in Frama-C.

Do you mean that loops are somehow statically unrolled ? Could you give 
a full example showing what you want to do?

The answer vastly depend on the logic used to write (x<1) and (x<0).
This is what Claude called a "memory model".
The choice depends on the fragment of C you want to support and on the 
kind of property you are willing to get.
Anne may show some possible outputs on your very example with different 
memory models.

You mention "C predicate": do you mean any side-effect free C expression 
  without function calls interpreted according to the semantics of C?

To fulfill your dream you need to add C binding to Frama-C. This is far 
from being easy.

Hope this helps,
