Summary: We present a framework for local interprocedural shape analysis that computes procedure summaries as transformers of procedure-local heaps (the parts of the heap that the procedure may reach). A main challenge in procedure-local shape analysis is the handling of cutpoints, objects that separate the input heap of an invoked procedure from the rest of the heap, which – from the viewpoint of that invocation – is non-accessible and immutable.
In this paper, we limit our attention to effectively cutpoint-free programs – programs in which the only objects that separate the callee’s heap from the rest of the heap, when considering live reference fields, are the ones pointed to by the actual parameters of the invocation. This limitation (and certain variations of it, which we also describe) simplifies the local-reasoning about procedure calls because the analysis needs not track cutpoints. Furthermore, our analysis (conservatively) verifies that a program is effectively cutpoint-free
