Name

nupn_info - query and transformation of Nested-Unit Petri Nets

Synopsis

nupn_info option [ filename.nupn ]

Description

Taking as input filename.nupn (or by default the standard input), which contains a Nested-Unit Petri Net (NUPN) encoded in the nupn format, nupn_info performs various analyses or transformations, depending on the option specified on the command-line, and writes the corresponding results to the standard output. Error messages, if any, are displayed on the standard error.

For performance reasons, nupn_info assumes that the contents of filename.nupn are correct. When dealing with an unknown Nested-Unit Petri Net, it is therefore advisable to first analyze its contents with the -check option of caesar.bdd .

Options

-trivial-units
Erase the existing unit structure of filename.nupn and replace it with the trivial unit structure, in which each unit contains a single place, except the root unit, which has no place and contains all the other units. The resulting NUPN is displayed on the standard output.

Any other option is passed to caesar.bdd , so that nupn_info can be seen as a superset of caesar.bdd.

NUPN (Nested-Unit Petri Net) Format

See the nupn manual page for a detailed definition of the NUPN file format.

Exit Status

The exit status of nupn_info is zero if execution went well. Otherwise a non-zero exit status is returned.
