Name

bcg_info - display information about graphs encoded in the BCG format

Synopsis

bcg_info [ bcg_options ] [ -branching ] [ -deadlock ] [ -format ] [ -hidden ] [ -labels ] [ -nondeterministic label_number ] [ -order ] [ -path state_number ] [ -profiles ] [ -size ] [ -unreachable ] [ -compact | -verbose | -line ] filename[.bcg]

Description

This command takes as input the BCG graph filename.bcg and displays various information (number of states, number of transitions, number of labels, etc.) about this graph.

A dynamic library corresponding to filename.bcg may be generated if necessary.

General Options

The following bcg_options are currently supported: -version, -create, -update, -remove, -cc, and -tmp. See the bcg manual page for a description of these options.

Particular Options

The following options are also supported:
-branching    
Display statistics about the branching factor, i.e., the average, minimal, and maximal number of transitions going out of the states.

-deadlock      
Display the list of deadlock states. The output of this command can be controlled using the -compact, -verbose, and -line options (see below).

-format      
Display the BCG format version number (e.g., 1.0, 1.1) used for filename[.bcg]

-hidden      
Display the number of hidden (i.e., `tau') transitions.

-labels      
Display the number of labels followed by the list of labels.

-nondeterministic label_string      
Display the list of states in which there is nondeterminism for label label_string, i.e., the states in which there are at least two outgoing transitions labelled by label_string. If label_string is equal to the special string `-', then nondeterministic states are searched for each label. The output of this command can be controlled using the -compact, -verbose, and -line options (see below).

-order
Display information about the order in which transitions are sorted (depending on source states, destination states and label numbers)

-path state_number      
Display the shortest path from the initial state to the state given by state_number. The path is displayed using the simple SEQUENCE format (see the exhibitor man page for a description of this format).

-profiles
Undocumented option.

-size      
Display the number of states and transitions on a single line.

-unreachable      
Display the list of states that cannot be reached from the initial state of the graph (this list should be empty if the graph is connected). The output of this command can be controlled using the -compact, -verbose, and -line options (see below).

-compact     
Display lists of states in a user-friendly, synthetic form. There are about ten state numbers per line and, whenever possible, a shorthand notation `M ... N' is used to indicate all state numbers in the range between M and N. Default option.

-verbose     
Similar to -compact option, except that the shorthand notation `...' is not used. Not a default option.

-line      
Display lists of states in a simple form, with only one state number per line. Not a default option.

Environment Variables

See the bcg manual page for a description of the environment variables used by all the BCG application tools.

Exit Status

Exit status is 0 if everything is alright, 1 otherwise.
