class table.Table(array: array, parser: cdmn.idply.Parser)[source]

The table object represents decision and constraint tables.

Attr name:


Attr hit_policy:


Attr inputs:


Attr outputs:


Attr rules:



Export tries to find the hit policy for a table, and then returns the method needed to transfer the table to idp form. These hit policies are currently:

  • A, U, F -> translate to definitions;

  • E* -> translate to implications;

  • C+, C<, C>, C# -> translate to aggregates.

Every hit policy has its own method.

Returns method:

the output of export method for the table.

find_auxiliary() List[str][source]

Every output in a C# table needs to use an auxiliary variable to work correctly. This method makes a list of those output variables, so that the auxiliary versions can be created.

Returns List[str]:

property fstring: str

Method to decide the string format for a certain hit policy.

Returns str:

the format string.


Method to generate the needed variables and quantifiers :returns variables, iquantors, oquantors: TODO

table.variname(string: str) str[source]

Function to return the variable of a header in the form of “Type called var”


string – the headerstring of which the variable name needs to be found.

Returns str:

the variable name.
