Working Session: Textual Views of Source Code to Support Comprehension
Source code can be viewed in many ways, with each view facilitating access to different information contained within the code. In this working session, we will explore the role that marked-up textual views can provide in support of software comprehension and maintenance. Text has the advantages of being easily communicated, effectively manipulated with existing tools, and highly scalable. Furthermore, marked-up text models may improve comprehension by expressing information directly within the context of maintainers’ focus – the source code they are manipulating. This session intends to explore the expressibility of marked-up text and its applicability in support of program comprehension tasks. Topics will include: the roles these models fulfill, their limitations, their combination, and the exploration of future research directions. 1 Theme There are many perspectives that maintainers can use when viewing source code. Code can be considered as a graph based on control or data ...
