Base class for symbolic expression nodes.
Every node has a specified width measured in bits that is constant over the life of the node. The width is always a concrete, positive value stored in a 64bit field. The corollary of this invariant is that if an expression's result width depends on the values of some of its arguments, those arguments must be concrete and not wider than 64 bits. Only a few operators fall into this category since most expressions depend on the widths of their arguments rather than the values of their arguments.
In order that subtrees can be freely assigned as children of other nodes (provided the structure as a whole remains a lattice and not a graph with cycles), two things are required: First, tree nodes are always referenced through sharedownership pointers that collectively own the expression node (expressions are never explicitly deleted). Second, expression nodes are immutable once they're instantiated. There are a handful of exceptions to the immutable rule: comments and attributes are allowed to change since they're not significant to hashing or arithmetic operations.
Each node has a bit flags property, the bits of which are defined by the user. New nodes are created having all bits cleared unless the user specifies a value in the constructor. Bits are significant for hashing. Simplifiers produce result expressions whose bits are set in a predictable manner with the following rules:
add
operation.(ule v1 v1)
results in true with flags the same as v1

pure virtual 
Returns true if two expressions must be equal (cannot be unequal).
If an SMT solver is specified then that solver is used to answer this question, otherwise equality is established by looking only at the structure of the two expressions. Two expressions can be equal without being the same width (e.g., a 32bit constant zero is equal to a 16bit constant zero).
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.

pure virtual 
Returns true if two expressions might be equal, but not necessarily be equal.
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.

pure virtual 
Tests two expressions for structural equivalence.
Two leaf nodes are equivalent if they are the same width and have equal values or are the same variable. Two interior nodes are equivalent if they are the same width, the same operation, have the same number of children, and those children are all pairwise equivalent.
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.

pure virtual 
Compare two expressions structurally for sorting.
Returns 1 if this
is less than other
, 0 if they are structurally equal, and 1 if this
is greater than other
. This function returns zero when an only when isEquivalentTo returns zero, but isEquivalentTo can be much faster since it uses hashing.
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.

pure virtual 
Substitute one value for another.
Finds all occurrances of from
in this expression and replace them with to
. If a substitution occurs, then a new expression is returned. The matching of from
to subparts of this expression uses structural equivalence, the isEquivalentTo predicate. The from
and to
expressions must have the same width.
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.
Ptr Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Node::substituteMultiple  (  const ExprExprHashMap &  substitutions, 
const SmtSolverPtr &  solver = SmtSolverPtr() 

) 
Rewrite expression by substituting subexpressions.
This expression is rewritten by doing a depthfirst traversal. At each step of the traversal, the subexpression is looked up by hash in the supplied substitutions table. If found, a new expression is created using the value found in the table and the traversal does not descend into the new expression. If no substitutions were performed then this
expression is returned, otherwise a new expression is returned. An optional solver, which may be null, is used during the simplification step.
Ptr Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Node::renameVariables  (  ExprExprHashMap &  index, 
size_t &  nextVariableId,  
const SmtSolverPtr &  solver = SmtSolverPtr() 

) 
Rewrite using lowest numbered variable names.
Given an expression, use the specified index to rewrite variables. The index uses expression hashes to look up the replacement expression. If the traversal finds a variable which is not in the index then a new variable is created. The new variable has the same type as the original variable, but it's name is generated starting at nextVariableId
and incrementing after each replacement is generated. The optional solver is used during the simplification process and may be null.

pure virtual 
Returns true if the expression is a known numeric value.
The value itself is stored in the number property.
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.

pure virtual 
Property: integer value of expression node.
Returns the integer value of a node for which isKnown returns true. The highorder bits, those beyond the number of significant bits returned by the nBits propert, are guaranteed to be zero.
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.

Property: Comment.
Comments can be changed after a node has been created since the comment is not intended to be used for anything but annotation and/or debugging. If many expressions are sharing the same node, then the comment is changed in all those expressions. Changing the comment property is allowed even though nodes are generally immutable because comments are not considered significant for comparisons, computing hash values, etc.

Ptr Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Node::newFlags  (  unsigned  flags  ) 
Sets flags.
Since symbolic expressions are immutable it is not possible to change the flags directly. Therefore if the desired flags are different than the current flags a new expression is created that is the same in every other respect. If the flags are not changed then the original expression is returned.

Traverse the expression.
The expression is traversed in a depthfirst visit. The final return value is the final return value of the last call to the visitor.
Implemented in Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Leaf, and Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Interior.

pure virtual 
Computes the size of an expression by counting the number of nodes.
Operates in constant time. Note that it is possible (even likely) for the 64bit return value to overflow in expressions when many nodes are shared. For instance, the following loop will create an expression that contains more than 2^64 nodes:
When an overflow occurs the result is meaningless.

std::vector<Ptr> Rose::BinaryAnalysis::SymbolicExpr::Node::findCommonSubexpressions  (  ) 
Find common subexpressions.
Returns a vector of the largest common subexpressions. The list is computed by performing a depthfirst search on this expression and adding expressions to the return vector whenever a subtree is encountered a second time. Therefore the if a common subexpression A contains another common subexpression B then B will appear earlier in the list than A.

Determine whether an expression is a variable plus a constant.
If this expression is of the form V + X or X + V where V is a variable and X is a constant, return true and make variable
