Abstract:

We study the technology innovations required to radically improve the process of understanding and parallelizing performance-critical legacy application code. We demonstrate the usefulness and feasibility of such a system, dubbed Program Reincarnation, using a simple prototype. A Program Reincarnation tool will assist the programmer in replacing the programs code the body while preserving the original specification the soul.
