Automated program repair can potentially reduce debugging costs and improve software quality but recent studies have drawn attention to shortcomings in the quality of automatically generated repairs. We propose a new kind of repair that uses the large body of existing open-source code to find potential fixes. The key challenges lie in efficiently finding code semantically similar (but not identical) to defective code and then appropriately integrating that code into a buggy program. We present… CONTINUE READING
