The mCRL2 toolset
For those who want to use the mCRL2 toolset, look at the
webpages. Among others, the pages allow to download the tools for various
platforms and contain manual pages. For large systems Linux and Mac is by far preferable
over Windows, because the compiling rewriter is not available on Windows.
All students can get an account at BCF (MF 3.083)
of the faculty to use the toolset
on svstud.win.tue.nl. Ask access to the
directory /scratch/2iw26 where large files can be stored.
This can be done by the NSC by putting you in an adequate group.
Make your own subdirectory with names group1, group2, etc.
In order to use the
graphical tools it is necessary to log in using ssh with the `-Y' flag.
For using graphical programs from a windows machine, a X-server
must be installed. For a MacOsX machine an X-windowing systems comes with the
standard developers distribution (which is also required to compile the toolset).
Logging at the svstud can be done using a program like ssh (secure shell).
All the programs on svstud
reside in the directory /home/jfg/bin. Example files are in
/home/jfg/MCRL2/examples. In case of problems contact J.F.Groote@tue.nl.
All tools have a --help (-h) flag that gives a concise description of the
tool and its use. All tools can be started via the command line, and the most important
tools work in the mcrl2-gui environment.
