Software engineers often inspect program differences when reviewing others' code changes, when writing check-in comments, or when determining why a program behaves differently from expected behavior after modification. Program differencing tools that support these tasks are limited in their ability to group related code changes or to detect potential inconsistencies in those changes. To overcome these limitations and to complement existing approaches, we built Logical Structural Diff (LSdiff… CONTINUE READING
