where the following options are available:

In the simplest form (first line of the synopsis), taking as input file.svl, which contains a verification script in SVL (Script Verification Language), svl produces actions invoking CADP tools. See svl-lang for a description of the SVL language.
svl runs a given script through the following steps:
During script execution, several temporary intermediate files may be created, and removed as soon as possible in order to minimize disk space consumption. svl also maintains a log file named file.log that contains a full diagnostic of the script execution.
Note that file.svl (or file1.svl) can be omitted if there exists a unique file with extension .svl in the current directory, in which case this file is considered as the input.
svl_kernelwill be searched in $SVL/bin.`arch` instead of $CADP/bin.`arch`.
svl version 2.0 and later: Hubert Garavel, Frederic Lang, Marc Herbert.
svl versions 1.0 to 1.6 (kept for internal use and never distributed officially): Mark Jorgensen, Christophe Discours, Hubert Garavel.
The authors owe thanks to Radu Mateescu and Charles Pecheur for their feedback about svl 1.* and to Laurent Mounier for his useful advices.

To avoid clashes with existing files, file names generated by svl are prefixed with a string of the form
_, where xxx is a 3 digits number. Hence it is recommended to avoid naming user files this way.
