Many tasks in source code analysis can be viewed as evaluating queries over a relational representation of the code. Here we present an object-oriented query language, named .QL, and demonstrate its use for general navigation, bug finding and enforcing coding conventions. We then focus on the particular problem of specifying metrics as queries.
