Since 2017 is just over, now is probably the best time to review what happened during this hectic year at OCamlPro… Here are our big 2017 achievements, in the world of blockchains (the Liquidity smart contract language, Tezos and the Tezos ICO,  etc.), of OCaml (with OPAM 2, flambda 2 etc.), and of formal methods[…]

Release of Alt-Ergo 1.30 with experimental support for models generation

We have recently released a new (public up-to-date) version of Alt-Ergo. We focus in this article on its main new feature: experimental support for models generation. This work has been done with Frédéric Lang, an intern at OCamlPro from February to July 2016. The idea behind models generation The idea behind this feature is the[…]

Reduced Memory Allocations with ocp-memprof

In this blog post, we explain how ocp-memprof helped us identify a piece of code in Alt-Ergo that needed to be improved. Simply put, a function that merges two maps was performing a lot of unnecessary allocations, negatively impacting the garbage collector’s activity. A simple patch allowed us to prevent these allocations, and thus speed[…]

Private Release of Alt-Ergo 1.00

Try Alt-Ergo in Your Browser

Recently, we worked on an online Javascript-based serverless version of the Alt-Ergo SMT solver. In what follows, we will explain the principle of this version of Alt-Ergo, show how it can be used on a realistic example and compare its performances with bytecode and native binaries of Alt-Ergo. Compilation “Try Alt-Ergo” is a Javascript-based version[…]
