mcrl2i(1) Interpreter for the mCRL2 data language


mcrl2i [OPTION]... [INFILE]


Evaluate mCRL2 data expressions via a text-based interface. If INFILE is present and if it contains an LPS or PBES, the data types of this specification may be used. If no input file is given, only the standard numeric datatypes are available. Stdin is ignored.The following commands are available to manipulate mcrl2 data expressions. Essentially, there are commands to rewrite and type expressions, as well as generating the solutions for a boolean expression. The expressions can contain assigned or unassigned variables. Note that there are no bounds on the number of steps to evaluate or solve an expression, nor is the number of solutions bounded. Hence, the assign, eval solve commands can give rise to infinite loops.
  h[elp]                         print this help message.
  q[uit]                         quit.
  t[ype] EXPRESSION              print type of EXPRESSION.
  a[ssign] VAR=EXPRESSION        evaluate the expression and assign it to the 
  e[val] EXPRESSION              rewrite EXPRESSION and print result.
  v[ar] VARLIST                  declare variables in VARLIST.
  r[ewriter] STRATEGY            use STRATEGY for rewriting.
  s[solve] VARLIST. EXPRESSION   give all valuations of the variables in
                                      VARLIST that satisfy EXPRESSION. VARLIST is of the form x,y,...: S; ... v,w,...: T.


OPTION can be any of the following:
-QNUM, --qlimit=NUM
limit enumeration of quantifiers to NUM variables. (Default NUM=1000, NUM=0 for unlimited).
-rNAME, --rewriter=NAME
use rewrite strategy NAME: 'jitty' jitty rewriting (default) 'jittyc' compiled jitty rewriting 'jittyp' jitty rewriting with prover
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
