This directory contains the LaTeX source files for the ACSL and ACSL++ reference manuals. ACSL stands for ANSI/ISO C Specification Language and is meant to formally specify the intended behavior of C programs, in particular through the usage of function contracts. ACSL++ is the corresponding language for C++. ACSL and ACSL++ are used by the Frama-C platform (https://frama-c.com/) that unifies a set of C/C++ analysis tools.
In order to generate a pdf version of the manual, you will need the following:
- a TeX distribution (e.g. TeXlive), including metapost
make acsl.pdf or
make acslpp.pdf should produce
acsl.pdf and acslpp.pdf documents, respectively.
It is also possible, for both documents, to activate a draft mode that will
show some comments about possible extensions and enhancements. To do that,
make DRAFT=yes acsl.pdf or
make DRAFT=yes acslpp.pdf
Frama-C's implementation notes
If this directory is located inside the
doc directory of a Frama-C
distribution, it is possible to also generate implementation notes manuals
(for both ACSL and ACSL++) indicating the level of support of each feature
inside the tool, and perform various consistency checks. Use the
command for that.
