Fault localization using execution slices and dataflow tests


Finding a fault in a program is a complex process which involves understanding the program's purpose, structure, semantics, and the relevant characteristics of failure producing tests. We describe a tool which supports execution slicing and dicing based on test cases. We report the results of an experiment that uses heuristic techniques in fault localization.
