ECCR 265

Using Compiler Analyses to Improve Programmer Productivity
Stanford University

A concept that has been shown to be useful for programming tools is the notion of program slicing. A slice is a subset of the program statements that directly or indirectly contribute to the values assumed by a set of variables at some program point over all possible executions of the program. This concept is useful for the construction, optimization, maintenance, testing and debugging of programs. In this talk I will describe a new context-sensitive slicing algorithm, present an evaluation of three slicing techniques, and demonstrate how we use slicing to help in parallelization.

Hosted by Richard Byrd.
Refreshments will be served immediately following the talk in ECOT 831.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
