# tt - the Boolean expression toolbox¶

Welcome to the documentation site for tt.

Warning

tt is heavily tested and fully usable, but is still pre-1.0/stable software with **no guarantees** of avoiding breaking API changes until hitting version 1.0.

## Synopsis¶

tt (**t**ruth **t**able) is a library aiming to provide a Pythonic toolkit for working with Boolean expressions and truth tables. Please see the project site for guides and documentation, or check out bool.tools for a simple web application powered by this library.

## Installation¶

tt is tested on CPython 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6. You can get the latest release from PyPI with:

```
pip install ttable
```

## Features¶

Parse expressions:

```
>>> from tt import BooleanExpression
>>> b = BooleanExpression('A impl not (B nand C)')
>>> b.tokens
['A', 'impl', 'not', '(', 'B', 'nand', 'C', ')']
>>> print(b.tree)
impl
`----A
`----not
`----nand
`----B
`----C
```

Transform expressions:

```
>>> from tt import to_primitives, to_cnf
>>> to_primitives('A xor B')
<BooleanExpression "(A and not B) or (not A and B)">
>>> to_cnf('(A nand B) impl (C or D)')
<BooleanExpression "(A or C or D) and (B or C or D)">
```

Evaluate expressions:

```
>>> b = BooleanExpression('(A /\ B) -> (C \/ D)')
>>> b.evaluate(A=1, B=1, C=0, D=0)
False
>>> b.evaluate(A=1, B=1, C=1, D=0)
True
```

Interact with expression structure:

```
>>> b = BooleanExpression('(A and ~B and C) or (~C and D) or E')
>>> b.is_dnf
True
>>> for clause in b.iter_dnf_clauses():
... print(clause)
...
A and ~B and C
~C and D
E
```

Exhaust SAT solutions:

```
>>> b = BooleanExpression('~(A or B) xor C')
>>> for sat_solution in b.sat_all():
... print(sat_solution)
...
A=0, B=1, C=1
A=1, B=0, C=1
A=1, B=1, C=1
A=0, B=0, C=0
```

Find just a few:

```
>>> with b.constrain(A=1):
... for sat_solution in b.sat_all():
... print(sat_solution)
...
A=1, B=0, C=1
A=1, B=1, C=1
```

Or just one:

```
>>> b.sat_one()
<BooleanValues [A=0, B=1, C=1]>
```

Build truth tables:

```
>>> from tt import TruthTable
>>> t = TruthTable('A iff B')
>>> print(t)
+---+---+---+
| A | B | |
+---+---+---+
| 0 | 0 | 1 |
+---+---+---+
| 0 | 1 | 0 |
+---+---+---+
| 1 | 0 | 0 |
+---+---+---+
| 1 | 1 | 1 |
+---+---+---+
```

And much more!
