This module has the following direct dependencies:

This module contains the predicates for selecting the abstract operations that correspond to an analysis domain. The selection depends on the name of the domain given as first argument to all predicates. Whenever a new domain is added to the system, a new clause for each predicate exported here will be needed to call the corresponding domain operation in the domain module. Some local operations used but not exported by this module would have to be defined, too. See the following chapter for an example domain module.

Adding an analysis domain to PLAI requires only changes in this module. However, in order for other CiaoPP operations to work, you may need to change other modules. See, for example, module `infer_dom`.

In this chapter, arguments referred to as `Sv`, `Hv`, `Fv`, `Qv`, `Vars` are lists of program variables and are supposed to always be sorted. Abstract substitutions are referred to as `ASub`, and are also supposed sorted (except where indicated), although this depends on the domain.

Both in the PLAI fixpoints and domains, for simplicity, we use the following variable name meanings:

- AbsInt : identifier of the abstract interpreter being used.
- Sg : Subgoal being analysed.
- SgKey : Subgoal key (represented by functor/arity).
- Head : Head of the clause being analysed.
- Sv : Subgoal variables.
- Hv : Head variables.
- Fv : Free variables in the body of the clause being considered.
- Vars : Any possible set of variables.
- Call : Abstract call substitution.
- Proj : Call projected onto Sv.
- Entry : Abstract entry substitution (i.e. the abstract subtitution obtained after the abstract unification of Sg and Head projected onto Hv + Fv).
- Exit : Abstract exit substitution (i.e. the abstract subtitution obtained after the analysis of the clause being considered projected onto Hv).
- Prime : Abstract prime substitution (i.e. the abstract subtitution obtained after the analysis of the clause being considered projected onto Sv).
- Succ : Abstract success substitution (i.e. the abstract subtitution obtained after the analysis of the clause being considered extended to the variables of the clause in which Sg appears).
- ASub : Any possible abstract substitution.
- R_flag : Flag which represents the recursive characteristics of a predicate. It will be “nr” in case the predicate be non recursive. Otherwise it will be r (recursive).
- List : (can be represented as OldList,List,AddList,IdList,NewList) current the list of nodes which a given node depends on.
- _s : The suffix _s means that the term to which the variable is bound to has been sorted. By default they are always sorted thus _s is added only when it appears neccessary to say it explicitely.
- _uns : The suffix _uns means that the term to which the variable is bound is not sorted.
- ExtraInfo: Info computed during the
`call_to_entry`that can be reused during the`exit_to_prime`step.

Specialized version of call_to_entry + entry_to_exit + exit_to_prime + extend for predicate Sg considered a "builtin" of type Type in domain AbsInt. Whether a predicate is "builtin" in a domain is determined by `special_builtin/5`.

Obtains the abstract substitution ASub on variables Qv for domain AbsInt from the user supplied information InputUser refering to properties on Qv. It works by calling `input_interface/5` on each property of InputUser which is a native property, so that they are accumulated, and then calls `input_user_interface/6`.

PREDICATEfull_info_to_asub/5

PREDICATEasub_to_info/5

PREDICATEasub_to_native/6

NativeStat and NativeComp are the list of native (state and computational, resp.) properties that are the concretization of abstract substitution ASub on variables Qv for domain AbsInt. These are later translated to the properties which are visible in the preprocessing unit.

PREDICATEconcrete/4

List are (all) the terms to which Var can be bound in the concretization of ASub, if they are a finite number of finite terms. Otherwise, the predicate fails.

PREDICATEunknown_entry/4

Usage:`unknown_entry(AbsInt,Sg,Vars,Entry)`

Entry is the "topmost" abstraction in domain AbsInt of variables Vars corresponding to literal Sg.

*The following properties should hold at call time:*

(`nonvar/1`)AbsInt is currently a term which is not a free variable.

(`nonvar/1`)Sg is currently a term which is not a free variable.

(`nonvar/1`)Vars is currently a term which is not a free variable.

(`var/1`)Entry is a free variable.

(`atm/1`)AbsInt is an atom.

(`list/1`)Vars is a list.*The following properties should hold globally:*

(`not_fails/1`)All the calls of the form unknown_entry(AbsInt,Sg,Vars,Entry) do not fail.

PREDICATEempty_entry/4

Usage:`empty_entry(AbsInt,Sg,Vars,Entry)`

Entry is the "empty" abstraction in domain AbsInt of variables Vars. I.e., it is the abstraction of a substitution on Vars in which all variables are unbound: free and unaliased.

*The following properties should hold at call time:*

(`nonvar/1`)AbsInt is currently a term which is not a free variable.

(`nonvar/1`)Sg is currently a term which is not a free variable.

(`nonvar/1`)Vars is currently a term which is not a free variable.

(`var/1`)Entry is a free variable.

(`atm/1`)AbsInt is an atom.

(`cgoal/1`)Sg is a term which represents a goal, i.e., an atom or a structure.

(`list/1`)Vars is a list.

(`term/1`)Entry is any term.*The following properties should hold globally:*

(`not_fails/1`)All the calls of the form empty_entry(AbsInt,Sg,Vars,Entry) do not fail.

PREDICATEpart_conc/5

This operation returns in NSg an instance of Sg in which the deterministic structure information available in Subs is materialized. The substitution NSubs refers to the variables in NSg.

PREDICATEmulti_part_conc/4

Similar to part_conc but it gives instantiations of goals even in the case types are not deterministic, it generates a List of pairs of goals and substitutions. It stops unfolding types as soon as they are recursive.

Usage:`collect_types_in_abs(ASub,AbsInt,Types,Tail)`

Collects the type symbols occurring in ASub of domain AbsInt in a difference list Types-Tail.

PREDICATEabstract_instance/5

Usage:`abstract_instance(AbsInt,Sg1,Proj1,Sg2,Proj2)`

PREDICATEcall_to_success_builtin/7

Usage:`call_to_success_builtin(AbsInt,Type,Sg,Sv,Call,Proj,Succ)`

Succ is the success substitution on domain AbsInt for a call Call to a goal Sg with variables Sv considered of a "builtin" (domain dependent) type Type. Proj is Call projected on Sv.

*The following properties should hold globally:*

(`not_fails/1`)All the calls of the form call_to_success_builtin(AbsInt,Type,Sg,Sv,Call,Proj,Succ) do not fail.

PREDICATEinput_interface/5

Prop is a native property that is relevant to domain AbsInt (i.e., the domain knows how to fully --+Kind=perfect-- or approximately ---Kind=approx-- abstract it) and Struct1 is a (domain defined) structure resulting of adding the (domain dependent) information conveyed by Prop to structure Struct0. This way, the properties relevant to a domain are being accumulated.

PREDICATEinput_user_interface/6

ASub is the abstraction in AbsInt of the information collected in Struct (a domain defined structure) on variables Qv.
