Results of measuring the performance of the storage management subsystem in an implementation of SNOBOL4 are described. By instrumenting the storage management system, data concerning the size, lifetime, and use of storage blocks were collected. These data, like those obtained from conventional time measurement techniques, were used to locate program(More)
This paper concems the representation and processing of data resulting from the measurement of programs written in high-level programming languages. The value of various "perspectives" of measurement results, especially in languages having many levels of activity, is illustrated. A representation of measurement data based on ideas from relational data bases(More)
This paper describes a graduate Computer Science course in which all aspects of the programming process are examined. The course has been taught for the past three years, and represents an attempt to pull together various results of researchers working on this rather undeveloped but important area. Unfortunately space does not permit the inclusion here of(More)
