cvc3 - automatic SMT theorem prover
cvc3 [option]... [filename]
CVC3 is an automated validity checker for a many-sorted (typed) first-
order logic with built-in theories, including some support for
quantifiers, partial functions, and predicate subtypes. The current
built-in theories are the theories of
· equality over free (aka uninterpreted) function and predicate
· real and integer linear arithmetic (with some support for non-
· bit vectors,
· user-defined inductive datatypes.
CVC3 operates on files in the CVC Presentation Input Language or the
SMTLIB input language. If no input file is given on the command line,
CVC3 reads standard input.
Only a few of the most frequently used options are given below. For
more details, see CVC3’s built-in help (cvc3 -help) or the CVC3
List all of the options for controlling CVC3. Boolean options
are marked (b). They are enabled by prefixing with + and
disabled by prefixing with -. In the help output, the current
setting is given. For example, the output lists
(b) -interactive Interactive mode
Indicating that interactive mode is disabled. to enable
interactive mode, the option +interactive is therefore used.
Other options are marked (s) for string arguments, or (i) for
Print the version of CVC3 and exit.
-lang (presentation|smtlib|internal) Select the input language used.
The default is presentation.
Enable interactive mode. Commands are read from standard input
and processed immediately.
+stats Print run-time statistics.
Automatically terminate CVC3 after t seconds.
