Yo
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I almost forgot the paper again, but luckily remembered it as I started typing the intro. Very good, very nice. Also I don't know if it's just me getting old or something, but I tensed so hard while yawning this morning that it's painful to turn my neck now. Feels like I pinched some nerve in between my shoulder blades. If anyone has some exercises they know of to activate/stretch out the upper back/neck area, let me know. Anyway, here's the issue.

Efficient Module-Level Dynamic Analysis for Dynamic Languages with Module Recontextualization [pdf]

Published: 18 August 2021
Tags: javascript, racket, research paper


Nikos Vasilakis, Veit Heller, Grigoris Ntousakis, and Martin C. Rinard illuminate a new approach to analyze programs while they're running, by taking advantage of how modern languages like JavaScript and Racket load their modules (pretty much as just strings, and the authors hook into these strings and modify them to include their code).
