Program slicing, a techniqueto computethe subsetof programstatementsthat can affect the valueof a program variableat a specificprogrampoint, is widelyusedin tools to supportmaintenanceactivities.To beusefulfor supporting theseactivities,a slicing techniquemustbesufficiently preciseandefficient. Harrold andCi proposea methodfor improvingtheefficiencyof slicing by reusingslicing informationfor subsequent slicing. This paperpresentsan interprocedural slicingalgorithmthat improvestheefficiency… CONTINUE READING
