Read or Write a CNF File
is a FORTRAN90 library which
reads or writes a file, in the DIMACS CNF format, containing
information about a boolean formula written in conjunctive normal form.
Boolean expressions, written in conjunctive normal form, may be used
as test cases for the satisfiability problem. That problem seeks to
determine all possible combinations of variable values that result in
the formula being evaluated as TRUE.
The routines in CNF_IO are intended to make it possible to
transfer information between a CNF file and a computer program.
The computer code and data files described and made available on this web page
are distributed under
the GNU LGPL license.
CNF_IO is available in
a C++ version and
a FORTRAN77 version and
a FORTRAN90 version.
Related Data and Programs:
a data directory which
describes the DIMACS CNF file format for specifying instances of the
satisfiability problem for boolean formulas in conjunctive normal form.
a FORTRAN90 program which
demonstrates, for a particular circuit, an exhaustive search
for solutions of the circuit satisfiability problem.
