Null dereference analysis in practice
Many analysis techniques have been proposed to determine when a potentially null value may be dereferenced. But we have observed in practice that not every potential null derefere...

Packrat parsers can handle practical grammars in mostly constant space
Packrat parsing is a powerful parsing algorithm presented by Ford in 2002. Packrat parsers can handle complicated grammars and recursive structures in lexical elements more easily...

Opportunities for concurrent dynamic analysis with explicit inter-core communication
Multicore is now the dominant processor trend, and the number of cores is rapidly increasing. The paradigm shift to multicore forces the redesign of the software stack, which incl...

Expect the unexpected: error code mismatches between documentation and the real world
Inaccurate documentation can mislead programmers and cause software to fail in unexpected ways. We examine mismatches between documented and actual error codes returned by 42 Linu...
