The Power of String Solving: Simplicity of Comparison
The increased interest in string solving in the recent years has made it very hard to identify the right tool to address a particular user’s purpose. Firstly, there is a multitude of string solving, each addressing essentially some subset of the general problem. Generally, the addressed fragments are relevant and well motivated, but the lack of comparisons between the existing tools on an equal set of benchmarks, cannot go unnoticed, especially as a common framework to compare solvers seems to be missing. In this paper we gather a set of relevant benchmarks and introduce our new benchmarking framework ZaligVinder to address this purpose.
