Summary0001415: Logging just enough information for failed pre-conditions
DescriptionThere was a bit of a discussion over an analysis made on an example provided by a StackOverflow user:


The current message is:

.../libc/string.h:54:[value] Function memcpy: precondition got status invalid.

That is a bit frustrating. The localization of the call to memcpy() can be found just above in the log:

[value] computing for function memcpy <- main.
        Called from mem.c:13.

but the exact nature of the detected issue is only printed as a reference to libc/string.h, a file that the user did not even provide emself.

There are at least two solutions suggested by the discussion:

- annotate the libc preconditions with nice labels, and when a pre-condition fails, print any label it may have, or

- print the entire ACSL pre-condition that failed, including any label it may have.

Properties line numbers will be shown together with the property name. This also require updating the libc to be useful, though.
