Program Slicing is the process of deleting statements in a program that do not affect a given set of variables at a chosen point in the program. In this paper the first parallel slicing algorithm for static program slicing is introduced. It is shown how the control flow graph of the program to be sliced is converted into a network of concurrent processes,(More)
Problems associated with understanding, verifying and reengineering the way in which a system allocates and releases dynamic memory present significant challenges to the software maintainer. Because the questions underlying these problems are undecidable, no system can provide a completely fail safe certification. For example, in checking for memory leaks,(More)
Program slicing is a technique for program simpli cation based upon the deletion of statements which cannot a ect the values of a chosen set of variables. Because slicing extracts a subcomponent of the program concerned with some speci c computation on a set of variables, it can be used to assist program comprehension, allowing a programmer to remodularise(More)
