The coreStar Verification Framework

coreStar is a highly-customisable automatic generic core symbolic execution 
engine for analysis and verification with separation logic.

Building on *nix / Mac OSX / Cygwin

Use the standard incantation.
  ./configure --prefix DIR
  make install

(NOTE: In some environments, such as Mac OS Leopard, dynlink.cmxa is
unavailable, leading to a compile error. In that case, try "make install.byte".)

And then run, assuming DIR/bin is in your path.

Optionally, run the tests to make sure all is OK.
  make test


* OCaml >=3.11
  Debian / Ubuntu: ocaml, ocaml-native-compilers

Building on Win32 (native)

Open the Visual Studio Command Prompt. 
 - If you obtained Microsoft tools not as a part of Visual Studio, just open
   Command Prompt and manually set up necessary PATH and INCLUDE directories.)

Check that the make tool is in path.
 - If using Cywgin/MinGW based make, then just add Cygwin/MinGW bin directory
   to path. In addition, set the LIB environment variable to empty. This is
   due to problems that arise when make deals with directories containing
   empty spaces (like "Program Files"). You will probably have to manually set
   up additional include path for OCaml compiler to Visual C++ Runtime
   Libraries and Windows SDK libraries.

To run the build process, call: 
  make build

To set the environment variables necessary for coreStar to run:

After the build process has finished, you may have to add extension .exe to
compiled binaries located in coreStar's bin subdirectory.


* Microsoft-based native Win32 port of OCaml:

* FlexDLL:
  (solves the problem that Windows DLL cannot refer to symbols defined
  in the main application or in previously loaded DLLs)

* Microsoft Macro Assembler (ml.exe), Microsoft Visual C++ and 
  Microsoft Windows SDK libraries. (if you are not using Visual Studio,
  these tools can be obtained for free at Microsoft site)

* Unix make tool (e.g., the one distributed with Cygwin or MinGW)
