does anybody know a constant propagation algorithm that correctly
works with non-scalar variables(i.e., structures, arrays etc)? It is
necessary for program analysis tool.
The problem is that algorithm should work on high-level internal
representation (in traditional compilers like GCC constant propagation
pass usually works on low-level IR, which doesn't contain information
about non-scalar variables in original program) and the result should
be a program on source (high-level) language, where the possible
constant propagations are performed.
Thanks in advance.
