Abstract: In this work, we consider the automatic generation of test
inputs for Mercury programs. We use an abstract representation of a
program that allows to reason about program executions as paths in a
control-flow graph. Next, we define how such a path corresponds to a
set of constraints whose solution defines input values for the predicate
under test such that when the predicate is called with respect to these
input values, the execution is guaranteed to follow the given path. The
approach is similar to existing work for imperative languages, but has
been considerably adapted to deal with the specificities of Mercury, such
as symbolic data representation, predicate failure and non-determinism.
