Abstract

This paper proposes a methodology relating to the design and implementation of code changes in the code modification phase of the software maintenace cycle. This methodology aims at maintaining the structurization of the control flow. Also illustrated are the characteristics of a tool which supports the methodology proposed and calculates the variation of entropy, considered as the complexity of the control-flow, induced in a program by a maintenance operation.
