thread_locality of ownership domains

Nov 3, 2010 at 8:58 AM

I have a simple confusing doubt. Please clear it.

suppose in a function specification i have

func( struct example *G, unsigned *arr)


requires(wrapped(as_array(arr, G->n)



unsigned curr;


 // reading some variable in ownership domain of G

if(G->es[index].s == curr){



 can i do so even though the  array 'es'  is owned by G and not by the current thread?  even though i know that G is wrapped and cannot be changed by some other thread

I am asking this because I am getting an error for the 'thread_locality' of G->es[index].s

I have asserted that 'index' lies in the range of array bounds of 'es', then what are the possible reasons I got this error?

I read in the tutorial, that unwrapping other objects might disturb the thread locality of some variables. How? Is this could be the possible reason?

It looks to me as if 'es' is array of objects, not a primitive one (as suggested by the use of .s). Unlike arrays of primitive types, objects of arrays are not individual objects by themselves, so you would need to specify that G owns each of the elements of es; then it should just work. Maybe you will need to assert an in_domain to make the verifier see it, though.
