Sorry about that. But still I think we need to insist on the distinction 
between Frama-C/ACSL on one side,
and Jessie which is just one of the plugin among dozens of others.

Jessie manual should give you that...

.. although you're right that the current version on the web is 
outdated. This will be fixed soon.

Ah yes, that question about consts... It deserves an answer in the 
corresponding thread.

Sorry about that. I'm also losing a lot of time to maintain Jessie 
source code and documentation, to do my best to answer to the mails of 
the public list in a hopefully useful and constructive way, although 
this is not supposed to be my main activity in my current job.

You're right it is missing, thanks for reporting the problem.
