  • README.txt: this file
  • results-validated/: results of validation runs
  • results-verified/: results of test-generation runs and aggregated results

The folder results-validated/ contains the results from validation runs:

  • *.xml.bz2: XML results from BenchExec
  • * output from tools
  • *.json.gz: mapping from files names to SHA 256 hashes for the file content

The folder results-verified/ contains the results from test-generation runs and aggregated results:

  • index.html: overview web page with rankings and score table
  • design.css: HTML style definitions
  • *.xml.bz2: XML results from BenchExec
  • *.merged.xml.bz2: XML results from BenchExec, status adjusted according to the validation results
  • * output from tools
  • *.json.gz: mapping from files names to SHA 256 hashes for the file content
  • *.xml.bz2.table.html: HTML views on the detailed results data as generated by BenchExec’s table generator
  • *.All.table.html: HTML views of the full benchmark set (all categories) for each tool
  • META_*.table.html: HTML views of the benchmark set for each meta category for each tool, and over all tools
  • <category>*.table.html: HTML views of the benchmark set for each category over all tools
  • iZeCa0gaey.html: HTML views per tool

  • quantilePlot-*: score-based quantile plots as visualization of the results
  • example Gnuplot script to generate a plot
  • score*: accumulated score results in various formats

The hashes of the file names (in the files *.json.gz) are useful for

  • validating the exact contents of a file and
  • accessing the files from the witness store.
