TASSAL

Jaroslav Fowkes, Pankajan Chanthirasegaran, Razvan Ranca, Miltiadis Allamanis, Mirella Lapata, Charles Sutton
2016 Proceedings of the 38th International Conference on Software Engineering Companion - ICSE '16  
We present a novel tool, TASSAL, that automatically creates a summary of each source file in a project by folding its least salient code regions.  ...  While modern code editors do provide code folding to selectively hide blocks of code, it is impractical to use as folding decisions must be made manually or based on simple rules.  ...  We are also grateful to Rebecca Mason for letting us adapt her topic model implementation to source code and would like to thank Brian Doll for useful discussions.  ...

2022 Symmetry  
Almost all ASCS technology involves the following stages: source code modeling, code summarization generation, and quality evaluation.  ...  We can think of the source code and the corresponding summarization as being symmetric. However, the existing source code summarization is mismatched with the source code, missing, or out of date.  ...  We thank the associate editor and the reviewers for their useful feedback that improved this paper.  ...

Autofolding for Source Code Summarization

Jaroslav Fowkes, Pankajan Chanthirasegaran, Razvan Ranca, Miltiadis Allamanis, Mirella Lapata, Charles Sutton
2017 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
We present a novel solution by formulating the problem as a sequence of AST folding decisions, leveraging a scoped topic model for code tokens.  ...  Developers spend much of their time reading and browsing source code, raising new opportunities for summarization methods.  ...  We are also grateful to Rebecca Mason for allowing us to adapt her TopicSum implementation to source code and would like to thank Brian Doll for useful discussions.  ...
