PostProcess Answer Sets

Project Description

This program accepts clingo 4.x and clasp 3.x log files and an ASP script to postprocess the answer sets the log contains. The result is a rewritten log file.

Each answer is assigned a sequence number starting from 1 and it’s atoms are wrapped in the special predicate _as(Term, SequenceNum). The answer sets are replaced with atoms read from a special predicate _pp(Term, SequenceNum).

E.g. adding the atom “a.” to the first answer set in the log could be done with the following ASP script:

% Add "a." to first answer set / model
_pp(a, 1).
% Pass everything else through
_pp(Term, SeqNum) :- _as(Term, SeqNum).

Note that the sequence number does not necessarily correspond to <num> in the “Answer: <num>” line in the input log file; for example when multiple solve calls were used.



pip install --user ppas


ppas <script> <infile> <outfile> [--clingo-bin=<path>, --quiet]
ppas -h | --help
ppas --version

      --clingo-bin=<path>       Path to clingo binary.
      --quiet                   Disable stdout messages.
      -h --help                 Show this screen.
      --version                 Show version.


Examples are available in the examples/ directory. E.g.: examples/tsp/script.asp examples/tsp/log.txt tsp-processed.txt
