Hello St?phane,

It helps! Thanks a lot.

> An other strategy for industrial (or not) developpers is to apply value analysis on sub-components of the program during its development.

How do you proceed in practice to do such analysis? Are you writing a
stub that generates required values with the Frama_C_* functions and
then call the top functions of the analysed sub-component (as in Skein
tutorial for example)? Are you using -lib-entry -main options? A
combination of both?

Interesting point of view. I'll reused it. ;-)

I'm looking forward to see them.

And I would also be interested in experience report on people
integrating Frama-C analyses in their development cycle, e.g. regular
call of Frama-C in batch mode on a source version control checkout.

Thanks a lot for the information,
Best regards,
