SAW binaries for Linux and macOS are available from the GitHub releases page. Binaries are distributed as
.zip files which you can extract to a location of your choice.
Nightly builds are also available here.
SAW is also available for Docker and can be fetched using one of the following commands (for the REPL and RPC API, respectively):
docker pull ghcr.io/galoisinc/saw:0.9 docker pull ghcr.io/galoisinc/saw-remote-api:0.9
SAW can make use of a variety of external tools, particularly SMT solvers. Due to SAW’s use of Cryptol, the Z3 solver is a strict dependency for Cryptol type checking.
The full set of SMT solvers we currently support for other verification tasks is determined by Levent Erkök’s SBV package and Galois’ What4 package. This set currently includes ABC, Boolector, CVC4, MathSAT, Yices, and Z3. These solvers can be downloaded from their respective developers at the locations below.
As of release v0.9, we also provide binary packages for SAW that include compatible versions of a variety of solvers. Look for archive files that have
with-solvers in the filename on the v0.9 release page.
