Project Four: Satisfiability (SAT)

Out: Nov. 5, 2020; Due: Nov. 22, 2020

I. Motivation

To give you experience in implementing abstract data types (ADTs), using interfaces (abstract

base classes), and using interface/implementation inheritance.

II. Introduction

In this project, you will implement two simple methods for deciding the satisfiability (SAT) of a

Boolean expression, which are by enumeration and deduction. We have provided a set of slides

on introduction to SAT in the Project-4-Related-Files.zip. Please read it first.

However, in terms of the detailed procedure, you should follow what is specified in this

description.

Boolean algebra is a branch of algebra in which the values of variables are true and false, usually

denoted as 1 and 0. The three main operations in Boolean algebra are the conjunction (and), the

disjunction (or), and the negation (not). The conjunction (denoted as & or *) is a binary

operation and it only produces true when both operands are true (otherwise it is false). The

disjunction (denoted as | or +) is a binary operation and it produces true if at least one operand is

true (otherwise it is false). The negation (denoted as ~, –, or a bar over the operand) is a unary

operation that simply negates the value of the operand. For more information about Boolean

algebra, please search online (e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boolean_algebra).

With a given Boolean expression, we sometimes want to know whether there exists at least one

assignment of all the variables that lets the expression evaluate to true. If such an assignment

exists, this formula is called satisfiable, or SAT for short. Otherwise, if there is no such an

assignment, the formula is called unsatisfiable, or unSAT for short. For convenience, we will

write all our expressions in a standard form called conjunctive normal form (CNF), or simply

product-of-sums. The following is an example of CNF

?? = (?? + ??)(?? + ??)(??? + ??? + ???),

where

? Each sum is called a clause. There are 3 clauses in this expression.

? Each symbol (regardless of its form) in the expression is called a variable, e.g., ??, ??, ??.

? Each variable in true form is called a positive literal, e.g., ??, ??, ??.

? Each variable in complement form is called a negative literal, e.g., ???, ???, ???.

? Note: An expression can have several literals of one variable.

The above example is SAT as variable assignment (??, ??, ??) = (0,0,1) lets ?? evaluate to true.

The CNF is preferred in SAT problem, since an arbitrary Boolean expression can be transformed

into this form, and this form simplifies the process of evaluation in the following ways:

? As long as one clause evaluates to false (0), the whole expression is false.

? In order for the whole expression to yield true (1), every clause has to be true. In other words,

at least one literal in each clause has to be true.

The two methods used for deciding SAT will be introduced later.

III. Programming Assignment

You will provide one or more implementations of four separate abstractions for this project: a

single clause, a single CNF expression, an SAT solver, and a driver. All files referred in this

description are located in the Project-4-Related-Files.zip.

You may copy them to your own directory, but do not modify them in any way. This will help

ensure that your submitted project compiles correctly.

1. The Clause ADT

Your first task is to implement the following ADT representing a single clause:

/* Constants */

// Max number of literals in a clause

const unsigned int MAX_LITERALS = 50;

class Clause

/*

// Type: Clause

// ------------------

// The type Clause is used to represent a clause.

// Its attributes consist of:

// * literals: an array of literals.

// * numLiterals: number of literals in the clause,

// e.g. numLiterals = 3 for a clause = (x0 | x1 | -x2).

// * value: used to represent 2 special states of a

// clause: (0) and (1).

// When clause = (0), numLiterals = 0 and value = 0.

// When clause = (1), numLiterals = 0 and value = 1.

// Otherwise, numLiterals > 0 and value = -1.

*/

{

Literal literals[MAX_LITERALS];

unsigned int numLiterals;

int value;

public:

Clause();

// EFFECTS: constructs an empty clause.

void addLiteral(Literal literal);

// MODIFIES: this

// EFFECTS: add a literal to the current clause.

int evaluate(const int val[]) const;

// REQUIRES: the i-th element in val[] represents the value of

// the i-th variable: 1 (true), 0 (false), or -1 (unknown).

// The length of val[] should be exactly equal to the number of

// variables (represented by CNF::numVars).

// EFFECTS: given an assignment of variables, evaluate and

// return the value of the clause:

// 1: the clause evaluates to true,

// e.g. for clause = (x0 | -x1 | x2), if val = [0,0,0],

// clause.evaluate(val) = 1

// 0: the clause evaluates to false,

// e.g. for clause = (x0 | -x1 | x2), if val = [0,1,0],

// clause.evaluate(val) = 0

// -1: the value of the clause is unknown,

// e.g. for clause = (x0 | -x1 | x2), if val = [0,1,-1],

// clause.evaluate(val) = -1

void eliminate(Literal literal);

// MODIFIES: this

// EFFECTS: given a literal, simplify the current clause by

// assuming that this literal is true. The order of the other

// literals in the clause keeps unchanged.

void print() const;

// EFFECTS: print the clause in the following form:

// If numLiterals = 0, simply print (0) or (1) according to the

// "value" attribute.

// Otherwise, print the CNF in form like: (-x0 | x1 | -x2).

// Note that there should be a white space between every

// literal and “|”, but there should be no space between

// a literal and a parenthesis.

// If there is only a single literal, print like: (x0).

unsigned int getNumLiterals() const;

// EFFECTS: return numLiterals of the Clause instance.

Literal getLiteral(unsigned int i) const;

// EFFECTS: return the i-th literal of the Clause instance, i.e.,

// (this->literals[i]).

~Clause();

// EFFECTS: destruct a Clause instance. If there's no extra

// operations needed, just leave it empty.

};

The Clause ADT is specified in clause.h. The Clause ADT depends on the following

Literal type:

struct Literal

/*

// Type: Literal

// ------------------

// The type Literal is used to represent a literal.

// Its attributes consist of:

// * ID: variable ID of the literal, e.g., 0 for literals x0 and -x0,

// 1 for literals x1 and -x1, etc.

// * negative: represent the form of the literal in the clause,

// i.e., 'true' for negative form, e.g., -x0;

// 'false' for positive form, e.g., x0.

*/

{

unsigned int ID;

bool negative;

};

The type Literal is also declared in clause.h. It has an ID to represent its variable ID, and

a Boolean value to indicate whether it is positive or negative.

You are asked to put your implementation of the Clause ADT in a file named clause.cpp.

2. The CNF ADT

Your second task is to implement the following ADT representing a CNF expression:

/* Constants */

// Max number of clauses in a CNF expression

const unsigned int MAX_CLAUSES = 100;

// Max number of variables in a CNF expression

const unsigned int MAX_VARS = 50;

class CNF

/*

// Type: CNF

// ------------------

// The type CNF is used to represent the conjunctive normal form of a

// Boolean expression.

// Its attributes consist of:

// * clauses: an array of clauses.

// * numClauses: number of clauses in the CNF expression,

// e.g. numClauses = 2 for CNF expression (x0 | -x1) & (x0).

// * numVars: number of variables in the CNF expression,

// e.g. numVars = 2 for CNF expression (x0 | -x1) & (-x0 | x1)

*/

{

Clause clauses[MAX_CLAUSES];

unsigned int numClauses;

unsigned int numVars;

public:

CNF();

// EFFECTS: construct an empty CNF expression.

void addClause(Clause cls);

// MODIFIES: this

// EFFECTS: add a clause to the current CNF expression.

void eliminate(Literal literal);

// MODIFIES: this

// EFFECTS: given a literal, simplify the current CNF expression

// by assuming that this literal is true.

int evaluate(const int val[]) const;

// REQUIRES: the i-th element in val[] represents the value of the

// i-th variable: 1 (true), 0 (false), or -1 (unknown).

// The length of val[] should be exactly equal to the number of

// variables.

// EFFECTS: given an assignment of variables, evaluate and

// return the value of the CNF expression:

// 1: the CNF expression evaluates to true,

// e.g. for cnf.clauses = (x0 | -x1 | x2) & (x0 | x1 | -x2),

// if val = [0,0,0], cnf.evaluate(val) = 1

// 0: the CNF expression evaluates to false,

// e.g. for cnf.clauses = (x0 | -x1 | x2) & (x0 | x1 | -x2),

// if val = [0,0,1], cnf.evaluate(val) = 0

// -1: the value of CNF expression is unknown,

// e.g. for cnf.clauses = (x0 | -x1 | x2) & (x0 | x1 | -x2),

// if val = [0,0,-1], cnf.evaluate(val) = -1

bool hasUnit() const;

// EFFECTS: check whether there exists a unit clause in this CNF

// expression.

Literal getUnit() const;

// REQUIRES: the current CNF expression has at least one unit

// clause.

// EFFECTS: return the only literal of the leftmost unit clause.

CNF unitPropagate(Literal unit, int val[]) const;

// MODIFIES: val

// EFFECTS: given a literal and assuming it to be true, infer the

// value of its variable, and then return a simplified CNF

// expression with that variable eliminated from "this" CNF

// expression. Note that "this" CNF expression is not

// changed.

// E.g. cnf.clauses = (-x0) & (x1 | x2), val=[-1,-1,-1], you

// should first set val=[0,-1,-1], and return a simplified CNF

// expression with variable x0 eliminated from the current CNF

// expression.

void print() const;

// EFFECTS: print the CNF in form like: (-x0) & (x1 | x2) & (1).

// See Section Driver Program for details on the output format.

unsigned int getNumVars() const;

// EFFECTS: return the number of variables in the CNF expression.

unsigned int getNumClauses() const;

// EFFECTS: return the number of clauses in the CNF expression.

void setNumVars(unsigned int n);

// MODIFIES: this

// EFFECTS: set the number of variables of the CNF expression.

~CNF();

// EFFECTS: destruct a CNF instance. If there's no extra operation

// needed, just leave it empty.

};

The CNF ADT is specified in cnf.h The CNF ADT depends on the Clause type, and includes

clause.h. You are asked to put your implementation of this ADT in a file named cnf.cpp.

3. The Solver Interface

Your third task is to implement two different methods for solving the SAT problem. The

interface for a Solver is:

class Solver

/*

// Type: Solver

// ------------------

// The type Solver is an abstract base class that provides the SAT

// solver interface.

// You need to implement its 2 derived classes in solver.cpp.

*/

{

public:

virtual void solve(const CNF &cnf) = 0;

// EFFECTS: handle the "SAT" command (defined in the

// Driver Program section).

// Solve if the CNF expression is satisfiable, or SAT;

// and output corresponding solution info.

virtual void evaluate(const CNF &cnf, const int val[]) = 0;

// REQUIRES: value in array val[] is either 0, 1, or -1.

// The length of val[] is equal to the number of variables.

// EFFECTS: handle the "EVAL" command (defined in the

// Driver Program section).

// Evaluate the value of the CNF expression given an

// assignment and output the solution info.

virtual ~Solver() {};

// Added to suppress compiler warning.

// If you do not need to do anything when destructing,

// just ignore it.

};

The Solver ADT is specified in solver.h The Solver ADT depends on the CNF type, and

includes cnf.h. You are to implement two different derived classes from this interface.

The first derived class is the enumerative solver, which simply enumerates all possible

assignments and test whether at least one of them can make the expression yield 1. In this case,

the final solution is SAT; otherwise, the final solution is unSAT.

Figure 1. An example of enumerative method.

Fig. 1 shows an example of solving the SAT problem given a Boolean expression with the

enumerative solver. The expression is not evaluated until values of all the variables are

determined. Note that in some cases, you can evaluate the expression without knowing the values

of all the variables. For example, in the example shown in Fig. 1, the expression is 0 when we

know x is 0. However, the enumerative solver will only make evaluation after all the variables

are determined.

In this project, the enumerative solver should be able to tell whether a CNF expression is SAT. If

it is unSAT, the solver simply tells the user. If it is SAT, it needs to print the complete

assignment with the minimum lexicographic order. Since we give all variables in the form of

??0, ??1, ??2, … , ?????1 , we can represent the assignment of variable values as a tuple:

(??0, ??1, ??2, … , ?????1) , where ???? can only be 0 (true) or 1 (false). For two assignments

(??0, ??1, … , ?????1) and (??0, ??1, … , ?????1), we compare them from the first element. If the two

elements from both assignments are equal, we proceed on to compare the next. When we find the

smallest i such that ???? < ????

(???? > ????

), we say that the first assignment is smaller (larger) than the

second one.

The second derived class is the deductive solver. The deductive method can be summarized as

following steps:

1. First print: “Start deductive solver for:”, and then on a new line, the CNF

expression you are going to solve. Initialize a decision variable set as empty.

2. Check whether there are unit clauses in the CNF expression:

a) If there is no unit clause, continue to step 3.

b) If there are unit clauses, pick the leftmost one (i.e., the unit clause in the

CNF::clauses array with the smallest index) and do unit propagation. Print the

deduction you made (e.g. “Unit propagate x0 = 1:”), and then on a new line,

the expression after this propagation is applied. Continue to the beginning of step 2.

3. Check the status of the current CNF expression:

a) If you cannot determine SAT/unSAT, continue to step 4.

b) If the expression is unSAT, continue to step 5.

c) If the expression is SAT, tell the user and end the algorithm.

4. Pick the unassigned variable with the smallest index, assign it with 0, and simplify the

expression. Add this variable to the decision variable set. Print your decision (e.g. “Make

decision x2 = 0:”) and then on a new line, the expression after simplification. Then

continue to step 2.

5. Check if the decision variable set is empty. If yes, the entire CNF expression is unSAT. Tell

the user so and end the program. Otherwise, pick the variable that is most recently added

into the decision variable set, assign it with 1, and simplify the expression. This can be

viewed as reversing the most recent decision. Remember to remove that variable from the

decision variable set. Print your new decision (e.g. “Reverse previous decision

x2 = 1:”) and then on a new line, the expression after simplification. Then continue to

step 2.

The main strategy we used here to do deduction is the unit clause rule. A clause is called a unit

clause if it has exactly one unassigned literal. According to the property of CNF, this

unassigned literal must be true to ensure SAT. Thus, we can determine the value of its

corresponding variable (i.e., false if the literal is negative and true if the literal is positive), and

try to eliminate this variable in the entire expression. This process is called unit propagation.

Figure 2. An example of deduction.

In Fig. 2, we show the process of a deductive solver. At first, since there is no unit clause,

therefore we need to make a decision. We choose the decision variable as ?? and set its value to 0.

Then, we simplify the CNF expression based on this decision. After that, we find that our CNF

expression has a unit clause (??). In order to make the whole CNF expression true, ?? has to be 1.

After we deduce and eliminate ??, we find that there are two unit clauses: (??) and (???). We deduce

based on the first one (??). In order to make the whole CNF expression true, ?? has to be 1. After

deduction and simplification, the expression becomes 0. This means that under the decision that

?? = 0, the CNF expression cannot be SAT. Therefore, we should reverse the most recent

decision, that is, further explore the SAT possibility when ?? = 1. This leads to the right branch

shown in the figure. After simplification, we find that the new CNF expression has a unit clause

(??). After deduction and simplification, we find the result is SAT. Thus, the original CNF

expression is SAT.

The code for both solvers must be implemented in a file named solver.cpp. You must also

declare a static global instance of each of the two solvers you implement in your solver.cpp

file. Finally, you should implement the following “access” functions that return pointers to each

of these two global instances in your solver.cpp file.

extern Solver *getEnum();

// EFFECTS: returns a pointer to a "enumerative solver"

// You should only declare one static global instance of EnumSolver

extern Solver *getDeduct();

// EFFECTS: returns a pointer to a "deductive solver"

// You should only declare one static global instance of DeductSolver

Hint: You can define your own data members and methods in derived classes, as long as you do

not modify solver.h and implement all methods declared in the Solver interface. For both

enumerative and deductive solver, one recommended way is to implement them recursively. If

you want to write a recursive function, you can define a helper function in your derived class.

4. The Driver Program

Finally, you are to implement a driver program that can be used to deal with user input and

invoke corresponding functions to solve the problem.

You are asked to put your implementation of this driver program in a file named main.cpp.

The driver program, when run, takes only one argument that indicates which solver the user

wants to use. The argument is one of the two strings, “ENUM” and “DEDUCT”, denoting the

enumerative solver and the deductive solver, respectively. Suppose you compile your program

and the output executable is called p4. The command you use to run it should be like:

./p4 ENUM

You can assume that the argument input by the user is always valid (either “ENUM” or

“DEDUCT”).

Then your program starts to read input from the standard input. The user will first input

information about the CNF expression. The first line of the input would be two integers: ??,

representing the number of variables, and ??, representing the number of clauses you are going to

read next. You can assume the number of variables and the number of clauses will not

exceed the maximum constants we set for you (in the source code).

After the first line, there are ?? lines of clauses. All these clauses compose the final CNF

expression. A sample input would be like:

5 6

x0 | -x4 | x3

x0 | -x3 | x2 | x4

x2 | x4 | x1

x3 | -x1

-x3

x0

There are 5 variables and 6 clauses. They form the following CNF expression:

?? = (??0 + ????4? + ??3)(??0 + ????3? + ??2 + ??4)(??2 + ??4 + ??1)(??3 + ????1?)(????3?)(??0).

Each literal is written in the form of “x” followed by a non-negative integer, and there is an

extra “-” at the beginning if it is in the negative form. You can assume the symbol is always

“x”, and the indices are 0, 1, …, ?? ? ??, if there are n variables. Expressions like (??0 +

??3)(??0 + ????3? + ??2) will not be provided (but can occur in your intermediate calculation), since

the indices do not follow the above rule.

Then, after the CNF expression is loaded into the program, your program should start waiting for

user commands to conduct various kind of operations. There are four types of user commands:

EXIT, PRINT, EVAL, and SAT. They are described below (we will continue to use the above

example for illustration):

? EXIT

Exit the solver.

Input:

EXIT

Simply exit the program and print “Bye!” with newline:

cout << "Bye!" << endl;

? PRINT

Print the CNF expression you have loaded on a single line in a complete form. There should

be a white space between every literal and “|”, also between every parenthesis and “&”.

But there should be no space between a literal and a parenthesis.

Input:

PRINT

Sample output:

(x0 | -x4 | x3) & (x0 | -x3 | x2 | x4) & (x2 | x4 | x1) & (x3 | -x1)

& (-x3) & (x0)

? EVAL

The command EVAL takes an assignment of all the variables as input and evaluates the CNF

expression for that assignment. The values are given in the order of variable index, and is

either 0, 1, or -1. You can assume the input is always valid.

Note: The variable assignment is provided in a new line after the command EVAL. There is

a white space after the colon in the output, and there is no punctuation at the end. Also,

“True”, “False” and “Unknown” are capitalized.

Sample input 1:

EVAL

1 0 1 0 0

Sample output 1:

The value of the Boolean expression is: True

Sample input 2:

EVAL

1 1 0 1 1

Sample output 2:

The value of the Boolean expression is: False

Sample input 3:

EVAL

-1 1 0 -1 1

Sample output 3:

The value of the Boolean expression is: Unknown

? SAT

Decide whether the current CNF expression is SAT or unSAT using the type of solver

assigned by the program argument. For the enumerative solver, you need to print the

solution with the minimum lexicographic order after you say it is SAT. For the deductive

solver, you need to output the detailed process of deduction.

Input:

SAT

Sample output (enumerative SAT):

The expression is SAT with one solution:

1 0 0 0 1

Sample output (deductive SAT):

Start deductive solver for:

(x0 | -x4 | x3) & (x0 | -x3 | x2 | x4) & (x2 | x4 | x1) & (x3 | -x1)

& (-x3) & (x0)

Unit propagate x3 = 0:

(x0 | -x4) & (1) & (x2 | x4 | x1) & (-x1) & (1) & (x0)

Unit propagate x1 = 0:

(x0 | -x4) & (1) & (x2 | x4) & (1) & (1) & (x0)

Unit propagate x0 = 1:

(1) & (1) & (x2 | x4) & (1) & (1) & (1)

Make decision x2 = 0:

(1) & (1) & (x4) & (1) & (1) & (1)

Unit propagate x4 = 1:

(1) & (1) & (1) & (1) & (1) & (1)

The expression is SAT!

We then give another unSAT sample CNF expression:

?? = (??0 + ??1)(??0 + ????1?)(????0? + ??1)(????0? + ????1?)

to see the sample output when the expression is unSAT.

Sample output (enumerative unSAT):

The expression is unSAT!

Sample output (deductive unSAT):

Start deductive solver for:

(x0 | x1) & (x0 | -x1) & (-x0 | x1) & (-x0 | -x1)

Make decision x0 = 0:

(x1) & (-x1) & (1) & (1)

Unit propagate x1 = 1:

(1) & (0) & (1) & (1)

Reverse previous decision x0 = 1:

(1) & (1) & (x1) & (-x1)

Unit propagate x1 = 1:

(1) & (1) & (1) & (0)

The expression is unSAT!

IV. Implementation Requirements and Restrictions

? You may #include

included, and you may not make any call to any function in any other library.

? You may not use the goto command.

? You may not have any global variables in the driver. You may use global state in the class

implementations, but it must be static and (except for the two solvers) const.

? You may assume that functions are called consistently with their advertised specifications.

This means you need not perform error checking. However, when testing your code in

concert, you may use the assert() macro to program defensively.

? The input is read from standard input. When you are testing, you can write your test case in a

file and use input file redirection to save time.

? We may compile part of your source codes with our driver program to test whether you have

implemented the inheritance correctly.

V. Source Code Files and Compiling

There are three header files (clause.h, cnf.h, and solver.h) and six sample input/output

files (sat.in, sat_enum.out, sat_deduct.out, unsat.in, unsat_enum.out,

and unsat_deduct.out) in Project-4-Related-Files.zip from our Canvas

Resources:

You should copy the header files into your working directory. DO NOT modify them!

You need to write four other C++ source files: clause.cpp, cnf.cpp, solver.cpp, and

main.cpp. They are discussed above and summarized below:

clause.cpp: your Clause ADT implementation

cnf.cpp: your CNF ADT implementation

solver.cpp: your two Solver ADT implementations

main.cpp: your driver program to deal with input

After you have written these files, you can type the following command in the terminal to

compile the program:

g++ -std=c++11 -Wall -o p4 main.cpp clause.cpp cnf.cpp

solver.cpp

This will generate a program called p4 in your working directory. In order to guarantee that the

TAs compile your program successfully, you should name you source code files exactly like how

they are specified above.

VI. Hints & Tips

? The SAT problem is a famous NP-complete problem, which means people cannot find an

efficient way to solve it in polynomial time so far. You can search online to learn more about

this problem.

? Since it is an NP-complete problem, we can only find different ways to improve the process

of finding solutions. You may have already realized that the deductive solver is simply an

improvement of the enumerative solver. The deductive solver is actually a simplified version

of the DPLL algorithm for solving SAT problems.

? Theoretically, the deductive approach can take as much time as the enumerative one in some

cases. However, for most cases, the deductive approach does avoid unnecessary checking.

For example, if there are some conflicting clauses in the expression, the deductive solver can

find it at the very beginning, while the enumerative solver needs to go through all

possibilities.

? The functions provided in clause.cpp and cnf.cpp are to help you implement the

final functions more easily. You may not use all of them in your implementation of the

solvers, but you still need to implement them correctly in case that we will test them

individually.

? The interfaces are designed to be layered (lower layers cannot call functions from higher

layers). Therefore, you may want to implement them from lower to higher.

VII. Testing

For this project, you should write individual, focused test cases for all the ADT implementations.

For these ADTs, determine the required behaviors of the implementation. Then, for each of these

behaviors:

? Determine the specific behavior that the implementation must exhibit.

? Write a program that, when linked against the implementation of the ADT, tests for the

presence/absence of that behavior.

You may want to test your program part by part. For example, you may first write some extra

code to test the functions in the Clause ADT individually. Then after confirming that the

Clause ADT is correct and can deal with all kinds of input, you can proceed on to write other

code to test you CNF ADT, and then the Solver implementations, etc.

Below is an example of code that tests a hypothetical “integer add” function (declared in

addInts.h) with an “expected” test case:

// Tests the addInts function

#include "addInts.h"

int main() {

int x = 3;

int y = 4;

int answer = 7;

int candidate = addInts(x, y);

if (candidate == answer) {

return 0;

} else {

return -1;

}

}

You may write code like this to test individual functions before you complete the entire project.

You can let your main function return 0 if the behavior is as expected, and return other value if it

is not. Often, -1 is usually used to denote failure and 0 is used to denote success.

In Linux you can check the return value of your program by typing

echo $?

immediately after running your program. You also may find it helpful to add error messages to

your output.

You should write a collection of Clause/CNF/Solver implementations with different, specific

bugs, and make tests to identify the incorrect code.

Also, you may want to test your entire program after you completed all parts. We have supplied

two correct sets of input and output, which are simply pure text files. In sat.in (unsat.in),

there is a sample CNF expression and a sequence of instructions. The correct output of two

solvers are in sat_enum.out (unsat_enum.out) and sat_deduct.out

(unsat_deduct.out), respectively. To test your program, type the following into the Linux

terminal once it has been compiled (we use sat.in as an example):

./p4 ENUM < sat.in > test_enum.out

diff test_enum.out sat_enum.out

./p4 DEDUCT < sat.in > test_deduct.out

diff test_deduct.out sat_deduct.out

If the diff program reports any differences at all, your code has a bug.

VIII. Submitting and Due Date

You should submit four source code files clause.cpp, cnf.cpp, solver.cpp, and

main.cpp. (You do not need to submit a Makefile for this project.) These files should be

submitted as a tar file via the online judgment system. See the announcement from the TAs for

details about submission. The due time is 11:59 pm on Nov. 22, 2020.

IX. Grading

Your program will be graded along three criteria:

1. Functional Correctness

2. Implementation Constraints

3. General Style

Functional Correctness is determined by running a variety of test cases against your program,

checking against our reference solution. We will grade Implementation Constraints to see if you

have met all of the implementation requirements and restrictions. General Style refers to the ease

with which TAs can read and understand your program, and the cleanliness and elegance of your

code. For example, significant code duplication will lead to General Style deductions.
