[Frama-c-discuss] Proving properties with land?

To qualify this a bit, that's true for properties over mathematical integers like the following:

> /*@ lemma alignment: \forall integer x, y; x <= y && y % 4 == 0 ==>
> ((x + 3) & 4) <= y;
>  @*/

but if you consider only fixed-size bitvectors (like machine 32 or 64 bits integers) then SMT solvers have very efficient dedicated solvers.

Then, the issue is that you need to exploit these, which is not the case today for WP, unless this has changed recently.
