This document describes the CTL file format used by moka(1) for model checking of finite states machine description.
This CTL file format subset is defined to enable classical CTL formulae description.
A CTL file is made of two parts: a declaration part and a formulae statement part.
The declaration part described types, constants, macros and all variables used in CTL formulae. It also describes assumption conditions and initial conditions that have to be applied by moka(1) during the model checking.
The formulae statement part described all the CTL formulae that have to be verified.
All boolean and relational VHDL operators are supported (see vbe(5)) and also the 8 CTL operators AF, AG, AX, AU, EF, EG, EX and EU. The CTL file format support also the imply boolean operator '->' and the equivalence operator '<=>'.
