There already are a few reasonable entries in the general area, to
which we could refer:
As a first step we should change the redirection of the CFA-page into
a separate page. Unfortunately I don't know how to do that.
Then we need an initial stub to fill in. Here's a quick attempt:
Control flow analysis is a [[static analysis]] technique for
determining the receiver(s) of function or method calls in computer
programs written in a [[higher-order programming language]].
The term /control flow analysis/ was introduced independently by Neil
D. Jones (ICALP:1981) and Olin Shivers (PLDI:1988).
It's rough, but it's a start.
BTW, it seems the 'Static Analysis' page
is referring to something different. It should probably be made into a
disambiguation page. Again I don't know how to do that.
