abustany (reporter)

It seems that the string.h is the culprit, removing it allows jessie to parse the file correctly.


virgile (developer)

The assertion in file "interp.ml", line 2383, characters 5-24 requires that there is no attribute attached to an ACSL axiomatic. This assumption is wrong: Frama-C's kernel use attributes to remember that a given global symbol (be it C or ACSL) is declared in Frama-C's standard library (and thus might deserve some special treatment). While it is safe to ignore such an attribute altogether, Jessie should not assume that no attribute will be present ever. Removing the assertion should thus solve the issue.


cmarche (developer)

Fixed in master branch

That is, the presence of attributes does not trigger a crash anymore

Yet, it is unlikely that Jessie would support Frama-C' string.h
