[Frama-c-discuss] Issue on value analysis with loops

The first i++ is the loop incrementation, while the second one is your
i = i+1. Cil (which is used by Frama-C as parser) does not record the
difference between i=i+1, i+=1 and i++, and chooses to print them
using the most idiomatic form. In debug mode, the printer is as simple
as possible, and print incrementation using += .

Depending on how I read your question, the answer may be yes or no. If
by "after the while loop()" you reason syntactically and mean just
above the "return" statement, then the answer is no. A this point, i
only has value 10, as can be seen by evaluating it with the
right-button menu. "Next statement" (both the printed message and the
notion used by Cil) actually refer to the execution flow of the
program. In this case, the control flows from i++ to the while itself
(sid 2), and we once more have 0 in the possible values for i (in case
we haven't started iterating).
