ltscompare(1) compare two LTSs


ltscompare [OPTION]... [INFILE1] INFILE2


Determine whether or not the labelled transition systems (LTSs) in INFILE1 and INFILE2 are related by some equivalence or preorder. If INFILE1 is not supplied, stdin is used.

The input formats are determined by the contents of INFILE1 and INFILE2. Options --in1 and --in2 can be used to force the input format of INFILE1 and INFILE2, respectively. The supported formats are:
  'aut' for the Aldebaran format (CADP),
  'dot' for the GraphViz format (no longer supported as input format),
  'fsm' for the Finite State Machine format, or
  'lts' for the mCRL2 LTS format


OPTION can be any of the following:
-c, --counter-example
generate counter example traces if the input lts's are not equivalent
-eNAME), --equivalence=NAME)
use equivalence NAME (not allowed in combination with -p/--preorder): 'none' identity equivalence (default) 'bisim' strong bisimilarity 'branching-bisim' branching bisimilarity 'dpbranching-bisim' divergence preserving branching bisimilarity 'weak-bisim' weak bisimilarity 'dpweak-bisim' divergence preserving weak bisimilarity 'sim' strong simulation equivalence 'trace' strong trace equivalence 'weak-trace' weak trace equivalence
use FORMAT as the format for INFILE1 (or stdin)
use FORMAT as the format for INFILE2
-pNAME, --preorder=NAME
use preorder NAME (not allowed in combination with -e/--equivalence): 'unknown' unknown preorder (default) 'sim' strong simulation preorder 'trace' strong trace preorder 'weak-trace' weak trace preorder
consider actions with a name in the comma separated list ACTNAMES to be internal (tau) actions in addition to those defined as such by the input
append timing measurements to FILE. Measurements are written to standard error if no FILE is provided
Standard options:
-q, --quiet
do not display warning messages
-v, --verbose
display short intermediate messages
-d, --debug
display detailed intermediate messages
display intermediate messages up to and including level
-h, --help
display help information
display version information
