<p>The author explores the issues involved with program recognition by reviewing in some detail three systems epitomizing current techniques in program recognition research: the Program Recognizer, Talus, and Proust. The Program Recognizer recognizes occurrences of stereotyped computational fragments in computer programs. Talus analyzes programs involving the recursive definition of data structures, permitting recursion on three data types: list, tree, and number. Proust is a program for debugging Pascal programs. The author concludes the most promising direction for future research would be to combine the best elements of all three programs.</p>
