A data flow anomaly in a program iB an indication that a programming error might have been committed. This paper descibes a method for detecting such an anomiay by means of program instrumentation. The method is conceptually simple, easy to use, easy toimplement on a computer, and can be applied in conjunction with a conventional program test to achieve increased error-detection capability.
