Data Flow Analysis Techniques for Test Data Selection

  title={Data Flow Analysis Techniques for Test Data Selection},

This paper examines a family of program test data selection criteria derived from data flow analysis techniques similar to those used in compiler optimization. It is argued that currently used path selection criteria which examine only the control flow of a program are inadequate.
