Abstract: Most existing debugging tools permit the user to manipulate and inspect the current runtime state of a program. However, more powerful debuggers can be built if both static and dynamic analys are combined into a single tool. In this paper we examine different categories of static program analysis. In particular we propose runtime dependent program flow analysis, where the current runtime state of a program is used to obtain increased precision of flow analysis results. This information can be made available for interactive query during a debugging session.
