For the purpose of clarity `source code' is taken to mean any fully executable
description of a software system. It is therefore so-construed as to include
machine code, very high level languages and executable graphical representations
of systems. The term `analysis' is taken to mean any automated or semi automated
procedure which takes source code and yields insight into its meaning. The term
`manipulation' is taken to mean any automated or semi-automated procedure which
takes and returns source code.
