[Frama-c-discuss] Unable to prove assigns clause for array

I'm trying to verify the following code:

/*@ requires \valid(a+ (0..aLength-1));
    requires aLength >= 2;
    assigns a[0..aLength-2];
void foo(int a[], int aLength) {
  int j;
  const int x;

  x = a[aLength-1];
  /*@    loop invariant x == a[aLength-1];
         loop invariant 0 <= j;
  for(j=0; j<aLength-1; j++) {
    a[j] = 0;

However, I'm unable to prove assigns a[0..aLength-2]. I recall that David Mentre had a similar problem proving an assigns clause on arrays.

In addition, Simplify (but not Alt-Ergo) is unable to check  x = a[aLength-1] for arithmetic overflow.

Any suggestions?
