The quickspec package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

QuickSpec automatically finds equational laws about your program.

Give it an API, i.e. a collection of functions, and it will spit out equations about those functions. For example, given reverse, ++ and [], QuickSpec finds six laws, which are exactly the ones you might write by hand:

 xs++[] == xs
 []++xs == xs
 (xs++ys)++zs == xs++(ys++zs)
 reverse [] == []
 reverse (reverse xs) == xs
 reverse xs++reverse ys == reverse (ys++xs)

The laws that QuickSpec generates are not proved correct, but have passed at least 200 QuickCheck tests.
