Demand-Driven Pointer Analysis

  title={Demand-Driven Pointer Analysis},
  author={Nevin Heintze and Olivier Tardieu},
Known algorithms for pointer analysis are “global” in the sense that they perform an exhaustive analysis of a program or program component. In this paper we introduce a demand-driven approach for pointer analysis. Specifically, we describe a demand-driven flow-insensitive, subset-based, con text-insensitive points-to analysis. Given a list of pointer variables (a query), our analysis performs just enough computation to determine the points-to sets for these query variables. Using deductive… CONTINUE READING
