Generate grammar-specific operations on trees.

The ABNF semantics includes tree matching predicates
(e.g. `tree-match-element-p`)
that take the grammar as a parameter.
Given a grammar,
one can define tree matching predicates
that are specialized to the grammar,
i.e. that implicitly depend on the grammar;
one can also define operations on trees
that are specialized to certain constructs of the grammar.

This

(deftreeops *grammar* :prefix ... )

Name of the constant that contains the grammar that the generated functions and theorems are specialized to.

This must be a symbol that is a named constant whose value is a grammar, i.e. a value of type

rulelist. It could be a grammar introduced bydefgrammar.The grammar must be well-formed and closed.

Specifies the prefix for the specialized tree operations.

It must be a symbol in a package different from the Common Lisp package and the keyword package.

A good choice for this symbol could be

<p>::cst , where<p> is the package of the application at hand and wherecst stands for CST (Concrete Syntax Tree). If the application involves multiple grammars for different languages, a good choice for this symbol could be<p>::<lang>-cst , where<lang> indicates the language that the grammar refers to.In the rest of this documentation page, let

<prefix> be this symbol.

The events are put in a `defsection`
whose name is

Tree matching predicates, specialized to

*grammar* . The predicates are put in the same package as<prefix> .Each predicate takes two arguments:

- A tree (for the first one), or a list of trees (for the second and third one), or a list of lists of trees (for the fourth and fifth one).
- An ACL2 string, which must be an ABNF concrete syntax representation of an element (for the first and second one), or a repetition (for the third one), or a concatenation (for the fourth one), or an alternation (for the fifth one).
Each predicate holds iff the (list of (list(s) of)) tree(s) is terminated and matches the element or repetition or concatenation or alternation. While in the semantics it makes sense to include non-terminated trees as potentially matching, for a specific grammar it normally makes sense to consider only terminated trees: this motivates the extra condition.

These generated predicates are actually macros, which use (subroutines of) the verified grammar parser to parse the ACL2 strings passed as second arguments into their ABNF abstract syntactic representation, and then expand to calls of the appropriate generic tree matching predicates in the semantics, passing the grammar as argument to them; the dependency on the grammar is implicit in the generated predicates. Note that the parsing of the strings happens at macro expansion time (i.e. at compile time), not at predicate call time (i.e. at run time).

There are some generated internal intermediate predicates that these macros expand into calls of, and it is these intermediate predicates that call the generic tree matching predicates from the semantics. These intermediate predicates are actual ACL2 functions, whose names are identical to the macros but with

$ at the end. Macro aliases are also generated that link the macro names to the function names: this way, the predicates can be opened (in proofs) via their macro names.

For each rule name defined in the grammar: a theorem saying that a tree that matches the rule name is a non-leaf tree.

For each rule name defined in the grammar: a theorem saying that a tree that matches the rule name has exactly that rule name.

For each rule name defined in the grammar: a theorem saying that if a tree matches the rule name then its branches match the alternation that defines the rule name.

For each rule name defined in the grammar: a theorem saying that if a list of lists of trees matches the alternation that defines the rule name then the list of lists of trees matches one of the concatenations in the alternation. This is a disjunctive theorem, unless the alternation consists of just one concatenation.

For each rule name defined in the grammar by an alternation of two or more concatenations, such that each concatenation is a singleton of a singleton repetition of a rule name element: a theorem stating equivalences between (i) the branches (of a tree matching the rule name) matching each concatenation and (ii) some term over the branches that discriminates among the concatenations that define the rule name; there is an equivalence for each concatenation, and the theorem consists of the conjunction of the equivalences. This theorem is a conjunction of equivalences, one for each concatenation that defines the rule name.

For each rule name defined in the grammar by an alternation of two or more concatenations: a function that, given a tree matching the rule name, returns a positive integer indicating the concatenation matched by the subtrees, in the order in which the concatenation appears in the alternation, numbered starting from 1 for the first concatenation. If a rule name is defined by multiple rules (the first one non-incremental, the other ones incremental), the order of the concatenations indicated by the integer returned by this function is lexicographic, based first on the order of the rules and then on the order of the concatenations within each rule. The generated function is accompanied by the following theorems:

<prefix>-<rulename>-conc?-possibilities , which asserts that the result of the function is one of the numbers 1, ...,n , wheren is the number of concatenations that form the alternation that defines the rule name. This is a disjunctive theorem.<prefix>-<rulename>-conc?-<i>-iff-match-conc , for each concatenation<i> (numbered starting from 1) in the alternation that defines the rule name, which asserts that the function returns<i> iff the subtrees match the concatenation.fty::deffixequivtheorems for the function.

For each rule name defined in the grammar by an alternation of one concatenation: a function that, given a tree matching the rule name, returns the list of lists of subtrees of the tree. The generated function is accompanied by the following theorems:

<prefix>-<rulename>-conc<i>-match , which asserts that the result of the function matches the concatenation<i> .fty::deffixequivtheorems for the function.

For each rule name defined in the grammar by an alternation of one concatenation, such that the concatenation consists of one repetition: a theorem saying that if a list of lists of trees matches that concatenation then the list of lists of trees has the same length as the concatenation and each list of trees matches the corresponding repetition of the concatenation.

For each rule name defined in the grammar by an alternation of one concatenation, such that the concatenation consists of one repetition, such that the repetition has a range of 1: a theorem saying that if a list of trees matches that repetition then the list of trees has a length within the range of the repetition and each tree matches the element of the repetition.

For each rule name defined in the grammar by an alternation of two or more concatenations, and for each concatenation

<i> (numbered starting from 1) in the alternation that defines the rule name, such that the concatenation consists of one repetition, such that the repetition has a range of 1: a theorem saying that if a list of trees matches that repetition then the list of trees has a length within the range of the repetition and each tree matches the element of the repetition.

For each rule name defined in the grammar by an alternation of one concatenation, such that the concatenation consists of one repetition, such that the repetition has a range of 1, and such that the element of the repetition is a rule name: a function that, given a tree matching the rule name, returns the tree corresponding to the element of the repetition.
