simple-sat: Simple Python SAT Solver

This project is a simple recursive and iterative implementation of a backtracking, watchlist-based, SAT solver. Code is based mostly on Knuth's SAT0W program which can be found here. The iterative code follows Knuth's version much closer, but is a bit more complicated. The recursive version is rather straight-forward. Intended primarily as a learning tool.

Accompanying article can be found at http://sahandsaba.com/understanding-sat-by-implementing-a-simple-sat-solver-in-python.html.

Usage

usage: sat.py [-h] [-v] [-a] [-b] [--output_filter OUTPUT_FILTER]
              [-i INPUT]

Solve SAT instance by reading from stdin using an iterative or recursive
watchlist-based backtracking algorithm. Recursive algorithm is used by
default, unless the --iterative flag is given. Empty lines and lines
starting with a # will be ignored.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -v, --verbose         verbose output.
  -a, --all             output all possible solutions.
  -b, --brief           brief output for assignemnts: outputs variables
                        assigned 1.
  --output_filter OUTPUT_FILTER
                        only output variables with namesstring with given
                        string.
  --iterative           use the iterative solver.
  -i INPUT, --input INPUT
                        read from given file instead of stdin.

Example Usage

$ python sat.py -v --input tests/simple/02.in
Current watchlist:
1: 1 2 3, 1 ~2
~1:
2:
~2:
3:
~3: ~1 ~3
Current assignment: ~1 ~2 ~3
Clause ~1 ~3 contradicted.
Found satisfying assignment.
~1 ~2 3
