M3: A General Model for Source Code Analytics in Rascal

Abstract

This short paper introduces M3, a simple and extensible model for capturing facts about source code for future analysis. M3 is a core part of the standard library of the Rascal meta programming language. We motivate it, position it to related work and detail the key design aspects.
