Summary0001117: addr_eq versus = and <> in generated axioms access_update, access_update_neq
DescriptionI ran "frama-c -wp -cpp-command 'gcc -C -E -I.' -pp-annot -wp-rte -wp-proof alt-ergo -no-unicode -wp-warnings -wp-out ./out ftest.c" on the attached program and inspected the generated file "out/store_ftest_post_1_po_ergo.why".

In the proof obligation for c-source line 14, the update operator a[i<-v] is used with e.g. addr_shift(s_0,0) substituted for i. In the axioms access_update and access_update_neq, arguments at position i are compared by built-in equality (and disequality <>).

However, terms starting with "addr_shift" are usually compared by "addr_eq", e.g. in the translation of lemma l.

I suggest to check whether the mentioned axioms should be weakened to:

axiom access_update : (forall a:'a1 farray.(forall i:int.(forall j:int.(forall v:'a1.(addr_eq(i,j) -> a[i<-v][j]=v)))))
axiom access_update_neq : (forall a:'a1 farray.(forall i:int.(forall j:int.(forall v:'a1.((not addr_eq(i,j)) -> (a[i<-v][j]=a[j]))))))

If not, I suggest to check whether addr_eq is in fact the same as =, and to drop the former for sake of simplicity.

correnson (manager)

Actually, there is no reason for keeping addr_eq instead of (=).
Weakening the access-update axioms is not permitted by the usage of build-in array theory in alt-ergo.
Also, I must mention that we are refactoring the models of WP and such cleaning is in progress.


pherrmann (reporter)

addr_eq is replaced by (=) as of svn 17556.
