I have notes from year ago concerning a book on control and dataflow
analysis, but I've lost the reference. Can anybody recognise it? The
chapters were:

1. Introduction
2. Preliminary background
3. Flow graphs, dominance, reducibility by intervals
      and depth-first spanning trees
4. Characterizations of reducible flow-graphs
5. Node orders, node listings
6. Node splitting
7. Some simple iterative algorithms for data flow analysis
8. Interval analysis
9. Monotone dataflow analysis frameworks
10. A modest quad improver for SIMPL-T

As you can see from this list, the book was an absolute goldmine of
information and was also very readable. Judging from the bibliography
it was published in the late 70's. I'd be very grateful for any pointers
to this and related books.

[I believe that SIMPL-T was done by Victor Basili, so you might ask him.
