Hi Gopi,


      Static analysis is the technique of symbolically executing programs and
retrieving their behaviors(primarily invariants). It is also called
abstract interpreter. Since different static analysis problems can be
modeled by a general mathematic framework, so I'm wondering if anyone has
implemented a generic static analyzer which can analyze all existing
problems.


    Regards,
Neal
