Abstract
EDSA (Expert Data flow and Static Analysis tool) is a tool that helps programmers understand existing code. It can help you track down a bug or determine in advance whether an intended change will have any undesirable side effects. Unlike most other program analysis tools, that automate analysis and design, EDSA automates the maintenance phase of the development life cycle. The first version of EDSA operates only on Ada programs, but its design allows for retargeting it to other procedural languages. Unlike conventional debuggers (symbolic or otherwise) EDSA does not work with compiled programs. It works exclusively with uninstrumented source code and analyzes the static structure of source programs.
