Cryptol Major Mode for Emacs
This package provides an Emacs major mode for Cryptol - a DSL for writing cryptographic code. From the homepage:
Cryptol is a domain-specific language (DSL) and tool suite that simplifies the specification of a cryptographic algorithm and then compiles the specification into VHDL... Cryptol is fully executable, allowing designers to experiment with their programs incrementally as their designs evolve. Cryptol compilers can generate C, C++, and Haskell software implementations, and VHDL or Verilog HDL hardware implementations... In addition to generating implementations of cryptographic algorithms, Cryptol tools can verify the faithfulness of an implementation to a reference specification, at each stage of the toolchain.
There are three ways of installing this package:
- marmalade via
- MELPA via
package.el(if you want to track the git repository.)
- Manual installation.
Emacs v24 has
package.el preinstalled. You will need to configure
the mentioned repositories yourself (refer to the homepages.) If
you're not using Emacs v24 yet, then you can still install manually.
Installation via Marmalade/MELPA
If you've configured your repositories, you need to decide what you want:
- If you want the latest stable version, you should use marmalade.
- If you want to track the git repository, you should use MELPA.
If you've configure marmalade, then installation is as easy as
M-x package-install RET cryptol-mode. The same is true for MELPA.
If you're using marmalde and MELPA, then MELPA's build will override
the stable version. You can exclude MELPA's
package-archive-exclude-alist to include
("melpa" . cryptol-mode).
Even if you don't use
package.el, installation is pretty
simple. Just put
cryptol-mode.el somewhere on your
.emacs. You're done.
cryptol-mode supports Cryptol 1 (tested with 1.8.27-1) and Cryptol 2
(tested with 2.0.0). The academic and evaluation versions of Cryptol 1
(1.8.23, 1.8.25) should work but may have other bugs.
Open up any
.cry file to get dropped into
automatically. Cryptol batch files (
.scr extension) are also
supported. Literate files are not yet supported.
Currently supported functionality is:
- Load the current file into the cryptol REPL:
- Insert type signature of top-level declaration under point:
M-x t(Note: This is only supported with Cryptol 1 at the moment.)
This will expect the
cryptol executable to be in your
can customize this (and various other aspects of the mode) by
M-x customize-group RET cryptol-mode RET.
