Title: Traversal, Case Analysis, and Lowering for C++ Program Analysis
Author: Wagner, Luke A.
Abstract: To work effectively , programmers need tools to support their typical development activities , such as the creation , analysis , and transformation of source code . Analysis and transformation tools can be difficult to write for modern programming languages and , without a reusable framework , each tool must separately implement nontrivial algorithms like name lookup and type checking . This thesis describes an extension to one such framework , named Pivot , that focuses on programs written in C++ . This extension , named Filter , assists the tool builder in traversal , case analysis , and lowering of the data structure representing C++ programs . Comparisons described in the thesis show a 2 -4x code reduction when solving basic problems (e .g . , searching for uses of a given declaration ) using the extension and a performance overhead that drops below 2x for larger problems (e .g . , checking C++ layout compatibility ) .
