Definition of equations[edit]

Does using 'gen' and 'kill' in this context make sense?

Wouldn't using 'use' and 'def' sets be more meaningful and less confusing, as 'gen' does have a totally different meaning somewhere else. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Somewikian (talkcontribs) 10:46, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Although uses correspond to gens and defs to kills, the terms use and def are specific to this analysis, whereas gen and kill are the accepted, general terminology for monotone data flow analyses. Therefore, gen and kill should not be stricken from the article. But, per your comment, it may be helpful to make the connection to use and def more explicit. (talk) 01:15, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Processing table example[edit]

The processing table should be fixed according to dataflow equations. It's a bit vague to me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Amshali (talkcontribs) 18:50, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
