Re: [PVS-Help] Generation of (E)Lisp code from PVS specification

The PVS Ground Evaluator generates Common Lisp code corresponding to a
PVS specification. The package PVSio, available from


re-implements the interface to the Ground Evaluator and provides a
predefined library of imperative programming language features to PVS
(to be only executed by the ground evaluator).

For example, you can write:

% test.pvs 
% To typecheck this file use M-x load-prelude-library PVSio

test : THEORY 

  hello : void = println("Hello World")
  fibo(n:nat) : RECURSIVE nat =
    if    n = 0 then 0
    elsif n = 1 then 1
    else fibo(n-1)+fibo(n-2)
END test

You can "run" this "specification" (as a matter of fact any ground
functional specification) in the Emacs interface of PVS or directly in
the shell command line, e.g.,

$ pvsio test:hello
Hello World

$ pvsio 'test:fibo(4)'

$ pvsio 'test:fibo(10)'
