During the past few years, several investigators have noted definite patterns in the distribution of operators in computer programs. Their proposed models have provided explanations for other observed software phenomena and have suggested possible relationships between programming languages and natural languages. However, these models contain notable deficiencies.
Index Terms:
software science, Algorithm generator, frequency analysis, operator distribution, programming languages
