A Differential Testing Approach for Evaluating Abstract Syntax Tree Mapping Algorithms

27 Feb 2021 Yuanrui Fan Xin Xia David Lo Ahmed E. Hassan Yuan Wang Shanping Li

Abstract syntax tree (AST) mapping algorithms are widely used to analyze changes in source code. Despite the foundational role of AST mapping algorithms, little effort has been made to evaluate the accuracy of AST mapping algorithms, i.e., the extent to which an algorihtm captures the evolution of code...
