Static memory leak detection using full-sparse value-flow analysis
We introduce a static detector, Saber, for detecting memory leaks in C programs. Leveraging recent advances on sparse pointer analysis, Saber is the first to use a full-sparse va...

Parallel Replication-Based Points-To Analysis
Pointer analysis is one of the most important static analyses during compilation. While several enhancements have been made to scale pointer analysis, the work on parallelizing the...

SPAS: Scalable Path-Sensitive Pointer Analysis on Full-Sparse SSA
We present a new SPAS (ScalablePAth-Sensitive)framework for resolving points-to sets in C programs that exploits recent advances in pointer analysis. SPAS enables intraprocedural p...

Flow-sensitive pointer analysis for millions of lines of code
—Many program analyses benefit, both in precision and performance, from precise pointer analysis. An important dimension of pointer analysis precision is flow-sensitivity, whic...

Verifying Pointer and String Analyses with Region Type Systems
Pointer analysis statically approximates the heap pointer structure during a program execution in order to track heap objects or to establish alias relations between references, a...

Flexible pointer analysis using assign-fetch graphs
se a new abstraction for pointer analysis that represents reads and writes to memory instead of traditional points-to relations. Compared to points-to graphs, our Assign-Fetch Gra...

Putting Pointer Analysis to Work
This paper addresses the problem of how to apply pointer analysis to a wide variety of compiler applications. We are not presenting a new pointer analysis. Rather, we focus on put...

Estimating the Impact of Scalable Pointer Analysis on Optimization
This paper addresses the following question: Do scalable control-flow-insensitive pointer analyses provide the level of precision required to make them useful in compiler optimiza...
