Abstract:

Program structure has been discussed as being an important influence on the ease with which programs can be constructed, verified, understood, and changed. Yet the notion of program structure has remained a vague and imprecisely defined concept. This thesis proposes a definition and a measure for program structure and evaluates the usefulness of the measure as a tool for determining and controlling structure in a program.
