Static program analysis supporting software development is often part of edit-compile-cycles, and precise program analysis is time consuming. Points-to analysis is a data-flow-based static program analysis used to find object references in programs. Its applications include test case generation, compiler optimizations and program understanding, and more. Recent increases in processing power of desktop computers comes mainly from multiple cores. Parallel algorithms are vital for simultaneous use… CONTINUE READING
