.SH NAME
clasp \- a conflict-driven nogood learning answer set solver 
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B clasp
[\fInumber\fR] \fR[\fIoptions\fR]
.SH DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the
.B clasp
command.
.PP
.\" TeX users may be more comfortable with the \fB<whatever>\fP and
.\" \fI<whatever>\fP escape sequences to invode bold face and italics,
.\" respectively.
\fBclasp\fP is an answer set solver for (extended) normal logic
programs. It combines the high-level modeling capacities of answer set
programming (ASP) with state-of-the-art techniques from the area of
Boolean constraint solving. The primary clasp algorithm relies on
conflict-driven nogood learning, a technique that proved very
successful for satisfiability checking (SAT). Unlike other learning
ASP solvers, clasp does not rely on legacy software, such as a SAT
solver or any other existing ASP solver. Rather, clasp has been
genuinely developed for answer set solving based on conflict-driven
nogood learning. clasp can be applied as an ASP solver (on LPARSE
output format), as a SAT solver (on simplified DIMACS/CNF format), or
as a PB solver (on OPB format).
.SH OPTIONS
