messages sent in the system checked against the protocol.
The specification language is small and easy to use, yet
powerful enough to specify a wide range of protocols.
Program variables can be passed easily to the verification
module, allowing the construction of mode dynamic protocol
specifications. Protocols can be specified incrementally,
starting out very general working towards a more complex
specification. Finally, the verification module can be run
either online, that is, while the application is executing,
or offline, using log files generated when the application
