HST refinement checker
HST is an open-source refinement checker for the CSP (Communicating Sequential Processes) process calculus. The CSP language and the refinement algorithm that HST implements are both described in The Theory and Practice of Concurrency, by Bill Roscoe.
This project is not meant to be a replacement for FDR, the canonical CSP refinement checker. It's more a playground for me to learn more about the refinement algorithm by trying to implement it. If it turns out to be generally useful, that would be a pleasant side effect!
$ sudo pacman -S base-devel
Once all of the dependencies are installed, build the code:
$ cd [path to local copy of repo] $ mkdir .build $ cd .build $ ../autogen.sh $ ../configure $ make $ make check
If you want to hack on the code, please feel free! [TODO: Write an overview
map of all of the existing pieces of code.] You can run
make && make check
as much as you want from in your
.build directory; if you're adding
interesting new features or fixing any bugs, please make sure to add test cases!
You'll probably also want to install Valgrind, to ensure that there are no
memory leaks. If Valgrind is installed,
configure will automatically activate
make check-valgrind target. This runs all of the same tests as
make check, but inside of Valgrind, to make sure that there are no memory leaks or
