In compiler theory, live variable analysis (or simply liveness analysis) is a classic data-flow analysis performed by compilers to calculate for each program point the variables that may be potentially read before their next write, that is, the variables that are live at the exit from each program point. Stated simply: a variable is live if it holds a value that may be needed in the future.

  • In compiler theory, live variable analysis (or simply liveness analysis) is a classic data-flow analysis performed by compilers to calculate for each program point the variables that may be potentially read before their next write, that is, the variables that are live at the exit from each program point. Stated simply: a variable is live if it holds a value that may be needed in the future. Recently as of 2006, various program analyses such as live variable analysis have been solved using Datalog. The Datalog specifications for such analyses are generally an order of magnitude shorter than their imperative counterparts (e.g. iterative analysis), and are at least as efficient. (en)
