The C preprocessor is commonly used to implement variability in program families. Despite the widespread usage, some studies indicate that the C preprocessor makes variability implementation difficult and error-prone. However, we still lack studies to investigate preprocessor-based syntax errors and quantify to what extent they occur in practice. In this paper, we define a technique based on a variability-aware parser to find syntax errors in releases and commits of program families. To… CONTINUE READING
