Code Analysis for Refactorings in QtCreator
Dear Sir or Madam,
My name is Pascal Kesseli and I am a DPhil student at Oxford University. I am currently writing a literature survey about automated refactorings, in which I compare various algorithms against each other.
I am also trying to give a short description as to which of these algorithms have already made it into commercial products. Is there any group, person or piece of documentation that I could consult as to which smell detection and refactoring application algorithms are used in QtCreator?
The algorithm categories are the following:
- (AST) Pattern Matching
- Slicing (Forward/Backward)
- Metadata (comments, annotations, method/class names)
- Software Metrics
- Model Checking (state space exploration)
- Abstract Interpretation (e.g. symbolic execution)
Thank you for any information you can provide me on this subject.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
I'd recommend asking this on the qt-creator mailing list and also the related IRC channel. You'll find there Qt Creator's developers/maintainers (this forum is more user oriented)
Hi and thanks for your message!
I just posted this message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
