[Frama-c-discuss] Question about Forward Slicing

There are two issues. First, be careful that -slevel 20 -calldeps
occurring after the -then-on, they are not taken into account for the
impact analysis (in fact, since the only thing you do on the impact
slicing project is to print the code, these options are useless
there). Second, impact itself is only meant to print (or highlight in
the GUI) the statements that are impacted by the current selection.
-impact-slicing launch a slicing (in the Slicing plug-in sense, i.e.
backwards), whose criterion is to preserve the statements that have
been selected by the impact analysis itself. It makes thus the same
approximations than the Slicing plugin, in particular, as Patrick
said, it does not take into account the information given by the
-calldeps option to distinguish between the two call to cpy.

Best regards,
E tutto per oggi, a la prossima volta
