[Frama-c-discuss] Validity of an array of struct

You generally don't need that: by construction, an array has valid
locations (up to its declared length of course).

It would be clearer if for each attempt you described _exactly_ what
you expected and what you got.

This is ill-typed: G_E+(0..5) is a set of pointers to the struct, you
should use either G_E+(0..5)->G_Tratado or  G_E[0..5].G_Tratado. And
even in that case, I don't think it means what you think: you have in
addition to take the addresses of the field to denote that each of
them is valid \valid(&(G_E[0..5-1].G_Tratado)).

Both annotations are equivalent except that \valid_range is
deprecated. That said, as mentioned above, since G_E is a global array
of length 5, they are trivially true.
