Conditioned slicing can be applied to reverse engineering problems which involve the extraction of executable fragments of code in the context of some criteria of interest. This paper introduces ConSUS, a conditioner for the Wide Spectrum Language, WSL. The symbolic executor of ConSUS prunes the symbolic execution paths, and its predicate reasoning system uses the FermaT simplifytransforma-tion in place of a more conventional theorem prover. We show that this combination of pruning and simplification-as- reasoner leads to a more scalable approach to conditioning.
