  • Status:
This paper1 makes a case for Source Code Analysis and Manipulation. The paper argues that it will not only remain important, but that its importance will continue to grow. This argument is partly based on the 'law' of tendency to executability, which the paper introduces. The paper also makes a case for Source Code Analysis purely for the sake of analysis. Analysis for its own sake may not be merely indulgent introspection. The paper argues that it may ultimately prove to be hugely important as source code gradually gathers together all aspects of human socioeconomic and governmental processes and systems. © 2010 IEEE.
