A description of a dynamic data-flow analysis method for C programs is given. The method extends the work of J.C. Huang (IEEE Trans. Softw. Eng., vol.SE-5, no.3, p.226, 236, 1979) to array elements, struct variables, pointers, and dynamic variables. A different approach is used for the analysis of subroutines. For most kinds of variables, a full set of operations is permitted, and for pointer variables, pointer arithmetic, and pointer-array notation interchanging is allowed. The method can be used as the basis for a tool for detecting anomalies in C programs.<>
