re: Compilers and Type Checking: Good or Bad? VIEW POST


I'm in the process of learning some Haskell too! :D

I hadn't heard of TLA before - thank you for that. It sounds a bit like a souped up version of property-based testing. The difference is, I guess, that property-based testing relies on roughly sampling the space of possible inputs at runtime whereas model checking would cover them completely. I get the impression that one would still have to manually specify the number of steps for the state machine to cover though, and of course one would also have to be confident that the invariants as specified match the real world.
