[Frama-c-discuss] Assign clauses with ghost variables


The use of the nonfree ACSL importer plug-in is the industrial solution 
to that scoping problem.
It solves most of the real industrial needs since industrials use naming 

In your example, an alternative based on the merge of several contracts 
done by Frama-C tool could help ;
but that functionality is undocumented :
Just add
     //@assigns the_state;
in your C source file between line
    static int the_state = 0;
    void set_state(int val) {

Then, Frama-C tool will generate the clause
    //@assigns the_state, gState;
for the contract of the function set_state.

As you see, there are some ways to solve that kind of problems for the 
use and deployment of Frama-C in industrial contexts.
