Abstract
EDSA (Expert Data flow and Static Analysis tool) is a tool that helps programmers understand existing code. It can help 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 most general goal of EDSA, as expressed in section 2.2 of the Requirements Document is that "EDSA shall aid programmers in debugging and/or analyzing programs ... EDSA shall significantly improve the programmers' productivity in terms of total life cylce costs." The objective of the system trials is the determination of how well EDSA achieves this goal.
