The specification and the test purpose are Inputs/Outputs Labeled Transition Systems (IOLTS). The specification is either the BCG graph spec.bcg, the LOTOS program spec.lotos, the composition expression spec.exp, the FSP program spec.lts, the LNT program spec.lnt, or the sequence file spec.seq.
The test purpose is described either in a BCG file tp.bcg or in an AUT file tp.aut.
TGV uses the bcg_io tool to transparently convert a test purpose in AUT format into the BCG format, and to transform the generated test case or complete test graph into the AUT format.bcg manual page. aut manual page.

refuse). The purpose must own one accepting state at least.
All action names are regular expressions (according to the definition given in the manual page of the POSIX regexp ). The test purpose is written in accordance with the specification label names (before renaming and hidding). It can also have transitions labelled with invisible actions of the specification.
If the predefined label "
*" (which means
otherwise) is present on a transition
leaving some state s, this label represents all other actions than those
already present on the outgoing transitions of state s.
So, for an AUT test purpose, a transition has the following grammar:
<transition> ::= '(' <from_state> ',' <action> ',' <to_state> ')' | '(' <state> ',' 'ACCEPT'|'accept' ',' <state> ')' | '(' <state> ',' 'REFUSE'|'refuse' ',' <state> ')' | '(' <from_state> ',' '*' ',' <to_state> ')' <action> ::= <UNIX_regexp> | '"' <UNIX_regexp> '"'
Note: if the extension of the test purpose filename is omitted (or is different from .bcg and .aut), the file is first searched with .bcg extension and then with .aut extension.
Actions labels of this LTS are based on those
of the specification, plus some predefined labels as
