It is important that program maintainers understand important properties of the programs they modify and ensure that the changes they make do not alter essential properties in unintended ways. Manually documenting those properties, especially temporal ones that constrain the ordering of events, is difficult and rarely done in practice. We propose an automatic approach to inferring a target system's temporal properties based on analyzing its event traces. The core of our technique is a set of… CONTINUE READING
