       cvc3 - automatic SMT theorem prover


       cvc3 [option]... [filename]


       CVC3  is  an  automated  validity checker for a many-sorted (typed) first-order logic with
       built-in  theories,  including  some  support  for  quantifiers,  partial  functions,  and
       predicate subtypes. The current built-in theories are the theories of

       ·   equality over free (aka uninterpreted) function and predicate symbols,

       ·   real and integer linear arithmetic (with some support for non-linear arithmetic),

       ·   bit vectors,

       ·   arrays,

       ·   tuples,

       ·   records,

       ·   user-defined inductive datatypes.

       CVC3  operates  on  files  in  the  CVC  Presentation  Input  Language or the SMTLIB input
       language. If no input file is given on the command line, CVC3 reads standard input.


       Only a few of the most frequently used options are given  below.  For  more  details,  see
       CVC3's built-in help (cvc3 -help) or the CVC3 website.

              List all of the options for controlling CVC3. Boolean options are marked (b).  They
              are enabled by prefixing with + and disabled by prefixing  with  -.   In  the  help
              output, the current setting is given.  For example, the output lists

              (b) -interactive      Interactive mode

              Indicating  that  interactive  mode  is  disabled.  to enable interactive mode, the
              option +interactive is therefore used.  Other options are  marked  (s)  for  string
              arguments, or (i) for integer arguments.

              Print the version of CVC3 and exit.

       -lang  (presentation|smtlib|internal)  Select  the  input  language  used.  The default is

              Enable interactive mode. Commands  are  read  from  standard  input  and  processed

       +stats Print run-time statistics.

       -timeout t
              Automatically terminate CVC3 after t seconds.
