Module System

Coqtop specific system utilities
type unix_path = string
type file_kind =
| FileDir of unix_path * string
| FileRegular of string
val (//) : unix_path -> string -> unix_path
val exists_dir : unix_path -> bool

mkdir path ensures that path exists as a directory, creating the missing suffix if necessary (like Unix' mkdirhier)

val mkdir : unix_path -> unit

exclude_search_in_dirname path excludes path when processing directories

val exclude_directory : unix_path -> unit

process_directory f path applies f on contents of directory path; fails with Unix_error if the latter does not exists; skips all files or dirs starting with "."

val process_directory : (file_kind -> unit) -> unix_path -> unit

process_subdirectories f path applies f path/file file on each file of the directory path; fails with Unix_error if the latter does not exists; kips all files or dirs starting with "."

val process_subdirectories : (unix_path -> string -> unit) -> unix_path -> unit
Files and load paths
val warn_cannot_open_dir : ?loc:Loc.t -> string -> unit

Load path entries remember the original root given by the user. For efficiency, we keep the full path (field directory), the root path and the path relative to the root.

val all_subdirs : unix_path:string -> (CUnix.physical_path * string list) list
val is_in_path : CUnix.load_path -> string -> bool
val is_in_system_path : string -> bool
val where_in_path : ?warn:bool -> CUnix.load_path -> string -> CUnix.physical_path * string
val get_output_path : CUnix.physical_path -> CUnix.physical_path

get_output_path fname relativizes fname with respect to the default output directory if fname is not absolute

val find_file_in_path : ?warn:bool -> CUnix.load_path -> string -> CUnix.physical_path * string

find_file_in_path ?warn loadpath filename returns the directory name and long name of the first physical occurrence filename in one of the directory of the loadpath; fails with a user error if no such file exists; warn if two or more files exist in the loadpath; returns instead the directory name of filename is filename is an absolute path

val all_in_path : (CUnix.physical_path * 'a) list -> string -> ('a * string) list

all_in_path loadpath filename returns the list of the directory name and full name of all physical occurrences of filename in a loadpath binding physical paths to some arbitrary key

val trust_file_cache : bool Stdlib.ref

trust_file_cache indicates whether we trust the underlying mapped file-system not to change along the execution of Coq. This assumption greatly speeds up file search, but it is often inconvenient in interactive mode

val file_exists_respecting_case : string -> string -> bool
I/O functions

Generic input and output functions, parameterized by a magic number and a suffix. The intern functions raise the exception Bad_magic_number when the check fails, with the full file name and expected/observed magic numbers.

type magic_number_error = {
filename : string;
actual : int32;
expected : int32;
exception Bad_magic_number of magic_number_error
exception Bad_version_number of magic_number_error
val with_magic_number_check : ?loc:Loc.t -> ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b

big-endian encoding and decoding of int32 (4 btyes) and int64 (8 bytes)

val input_int32 : Stdlib.in_channel -> int32
val input_int64 : Stdlib.in_channel -> int64
val output_int32 : Stdlib.out_channel -> int32 -> unit
val output_int64 : Stdlib.out_channel -> int64 -> unit

Clones of Marshal.to_channel (with flush) and Marshal.from_channel (with nice error message)

val marshal_out : Stdlib.out_channel -> 'a -> unit
val marshal_in : string -> Stdlib.in_channel -> 'a
val check_caml_version : caml:string -> file:string -> unit
Time stamps.
type time
type duration
val empty_duration : duration
val get_time : unit -> time
val time_difference : time -> time -> float

in seconds

val duration_between : start:time -> stop:time -> duration
val duration_add : duration -> duration -> duration
val duration_real : duration -> float
val fmt_time_difference : time -> time -> Pp.t
val fmt_duration : duration -> Pp.t
type 'a transaction_result = ('a * durationExninfo.iexn * duration) Stdlib.Result.t
val measure_duration : ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b transaction_result
val fmt_transaction_result : 'a transaction_result -> Pp.t
Instruction count.
type instruction_count = (Stdlib.Int64.t, string) Stdlib.Result.t
val instructions_between : c_start:instruction_count -> c_end:instruction_count -> instruction_count
val instruction_count_add : instruction_count -> instruction_count -> instruction_count
type 'a instructions_result = ('a * instruction_countExninfo.iexn * instruction_count) Stdlib.Result.t
val count_instructions : ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b instructions_result
val fmt_instructions_result : 'a instructions_result -> Pp.t
val get_toplevel_path : ?byte:bool -> string -> string

get_toplevel_path program builds a complete path to the executable denoted by program. This involves:

  • locating the directory: we don't rely on PATH as to make calls to /foo/bin/coqtop chose the right /foo/bin/coqproofworker
  • adding the proper suffixes: .opt/.byte depending on the current mode, + .exe if in windows.

Note that this function doesn't check that the executable actually exists. This is left back to caller, as well as the choice of fallback strategy. We could add a fallback strategy here but it is better not to as in most cases if this function fails to construct the right name you want you execution to fail rather than fall into choosing some random binary from the system-wide installation of Coq.
