Abstract
EDSA (Expert Data flow and Static Analysis tool) was conceived as a tool to aid in the largely unautomated task of gaining an understanding of existing code. This may be for the purpose of tracking down a bug or to dertermine in advance whether an intended change will have any undesirable side effects. In either case, the phase of the development life cycle that will most benefit from a tool like EDSA is the maintenance phase. The first version of EDSA operates only on Ada programs, but it has been designed with the intention of retargeting it to other procedural languages.
