Summary0002501: error in generated proof obligation
DescriptionThe attached file 'issue.c' contains a simplified (but still not very small) example of an issue I have within ACSL by Example.

There is lemma R_2 for the logic function R.
The definition of R uses the logic function F contained in the axiomatic block A.
When trying to verify R_2 with the command line below I obtain the message
                  [Why3 Error] anomaly: Failure("Can't find 'L_F' in why3 namespace")

When looking at the generated verification condition with Coq I found the following:
The generated hypothesis 'FixL_R' uses of course the function 'L_F'.
However, the necessary import clause 'Require Import A_A.' comes only AFTER the definition of 'FixL_R'.

Additional InformationThere is a work-around by calling the helper function 'Fix' in the definition of R (see the comment in the code).

The problem also "disappears' if lemma 'R_1' is removed (but I don't have this option).

While looking at this problem, I noticed that in general coq definitions and import clauses are interspersed in the verification conditions...

With 20.0+dev (Calcium), installed early May 2020 from, the error is still present.

The problem has been fixed. The fix will be available in the next release (and in the upcoming bĂȘta) but not immediately in the public development version.
