The quickspec package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

QuickSpec automatically finds equational properties of 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:

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

All you have to provide is:

Consider this a pre-release. Everything is complete but undocumented :) The best place to start is the examples at There is also a paper at Everything you need should be in the module Test.QuickSpec.
