PredatorHP Revamped (Not Only) for Interval-Sized Memory Regions and Memory Reallocation (Competition Contribution)

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNTCS,volume 12079)


This paper concentrates on improvements of the PredatorHP shape analyzer in the past two years, including, e.g., improved handling of interval-sized memory regions or new support of memory reallocation. The paper characterizes PredatorHP’s participation in SV-COMP 2020, pointing out its strengths and weakness and the way they were influenced by the latest changes in the tool.

This work was supported by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports within the IT4Innovations Excellence in Science (NPUII) project No. LQ1602.
