The Effects of the Precision of Pointer Analysis

  title={The Effects of the Precision of Pointer Analysis},
  author={Marc Shapiro and Susan Horwitz},
In order to analyze programs that manipulate pointers, it is necessary to have safe information about what each pointer might point to. There are many algorithms that can be used to determine this information, with varying degrees of accuracy. However, there has been very little previous work that addresses how much the relative accuracies of different pointer-analysis algorithms affect “transitive” results: the results of a subsequent analysis. We have carried out a number of experiments with… CONTINUE READING
