**Applying assertions during fixpoint**

This module contains the logic of what assertions need to be applied depending on the analysis step.

This module reads the values of the following flags:

`fixp_stick_to_success`: whether to use the value of the success assertions instead of what was inferred for the fixpoint (not working for eterms).For a module:

:- module(_,[p/1],[assertions]). :- pred p(X) => atm(X). p(X) :- X = a.

If

`fixp_stick_to_success`is set to`on`, the analysis result will be::- module(_,[p/1],[assertions]). :- true pred p(X) => atm(X). p(X) :- X = a.

Because the value of the assertion is used as it is. If it is set to

`off`, it will use the assertion only when it allows to gain precision (useless in this case).:- module(_,[p/1],[assertions,regtypes]). :- true pred p(X) => rta(X). p(X) :- X = a. :- regtype rta/1. rta(a).

`fixp_stick_to_calls`:**not implemented yet**, whether to use the value of the calls assertion instead of what was inferred by the fixpoint. This is harder than the success case since the heads of the analysis information may not be normalized.For example in the following module:

:- module(_,[main/0,p/1],[assertions]). main :- p(a). :- pred p(X) : atm(X). p(X).

Since the plai does not normalize heads it is imposible to generalize

`p(a)`to`p(X) : atm(X)`, the variables that the abstract substitution approximates must be in the head. However`p(X) : rta(X)`can be generalized only by changing the abstract substitution because the variable is already in the head.The fixpoint would have to be modified so that applying assertions can change the goals

`use_check_as_trust`: To activate the runtime semantics of the check assertions, i.e., use them as trust in the fixpoint.

Program point assertions are not processed here.

PREDICATEcall_asr/5

No further documentation available for this predicate.
The predicate is of type *data*.

The predicate is of type *data*.

PREDICATEcleanup_applied_assertions/1

Cleans the cached assertions

PREDICATEapply_assrt_call_to_success/8

Usage:`apply_assrt_call_to_success(AbsInt,Sg,Sv,Proj0,HvFv_u,Call,NewProj,NewCall)`

NewProj and NewCall are the result of applying the assertions that correspond to the `call_to_success` analysis point.

Currently, the implementation has only one option which is applying `true` and `trust` call assertions, and `true` success assertions (that are applicable to Sg:Proj).
