GenProg is a mechanized technique for repairing defects in off-the-rack, legacy programs without formal particulars, program explanations or exceptional coding practices. GenProg utilizes a stretched out type of genetic programming to develop a program variation that holds required usefulness however is not susceptible to a given defect, utilizing existing test suites to encode both the imperfection and required usefulness. GenProg might be connected either to program techniques for consequently detecting software defects source or modules.
