An Analysis of Some Commercial PL/I Programs
  • J. L. Elshoff
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
  • 1 March 1976
TLDR
The source code for 120 production PL/I programs from several General Motors' commercial computing installations has been collected. Expand
Improving computer program readability to aid modification

The modification of computer programs is a costly and constant job. Expand
The Influence of Structured Programming on PL/I Program Profiles
  • J. L. Elshoff
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
  • 1 September 1977
Two sets of commercial PL/I programs are studied. One set represents programming practice before the introduction of structured programming techniques and the other set after their introduction. TheExpand

An investigation into the effects of the counting method used on software science measurements
TLDR
This paper reports a study in which different methods of counting operators and operands are applied to a fixed set of 34 algorithms written in PL/I. Expand
Some programming techniques for processing multi-dimensional matrices in a paging environment
TLDR
We analyze programming techniques which will reduce the number of page faults in matrix operations and thereby improve program performance. Expand
On the use of the cyclomatic number to measure program complexity
TLDR
The October 1977 issue of SIGPLAN Notices carries an article that compares functionally equivalent programs that differ in their internal structure. Expand
Characteristic program complexity measures
TLDR
A small set of program complexity measures are studied with respect to how they identify the more complex procedures in a software system. Expand
A study of the structural composition of PL/I programs
TLDR
This paper reports a study in which the three models of operator distributions are compared with the measured distributions found in 34 PL/I programs. Expand
