Project Description

Perfect Developer, from Escher Technologies, is a language system that combines specification constructs, programming constructs, code generation and verification. When a source file is committed, not only is it analysed for soundness and completeness for code generation purposes, but also a collection of verification conditions are generated that can subsequently be offered to the verification system to establish correctness with respect to the invariants and assertions contained in the source. The verification conditions are generated with respect to traditionally accepted notions of the correctness of programming and specification constructs, rather than being derived from a formal semantics. The aim of this project is to investigate the formal semantics of the Perfect language, and to reconcile verification conditions generated thereby with those generated by the Perfect Developer system.
