Unknown author (2015-04-14)

We present a new horizontal code transfer technique, program fracture and recombination, for automatically replacing, deleting, and/or combining code from multiple applications. Benefits include automatic generation of new applications incorporating the best or most desirable functionality developed anywhere, the automatic elimination of security vulnerabilities, effective software rejuvenation, the automatic elimination of obsolete or undesirable functionality, and improved performance, simplicity, analyzability, and clarity.
