Traditional, syntax-preserving program slicing simplifies a program by deleting components (e.g., statements and predicates) that do not affect a computation of interest. Amorphous slicing removes the limitation to component deletion as the only means of simplification, while retaining the semantic property that a slice preserves the selected behaviour of interest from the original program. This leads to slices which are often considerably smaller than their syntax-preserving counterparts. Adoi:10.1016/s0164-1212(02)00135-8 fatcat:ylgtn56ru5eilc3uxmuxyjvm24
