An efficient lightweight forward static slicing tool is presented. The tool is implemented on top of srcML, an XML representation of source code. The approach does not compute the full program dependence graph but instead dependency information is computed as needed while computing the slice on a variable. The result is a list of line numbers, dependent… CONTINUE READING
