Moose (moosetechnology.org) is an open-source platform for expressing analyses of software systems and of data in general. In other words, its main goal is to assist and enable a human in the process of understanding large amounts of data. It addresses several categories of people:
- researchers in the area of software analysis, mining and reverse engineering,
- engineers and architects who want to understand systems and data, and
- tool builders.
This book covers Moose from various angles. It covers its externals, its internals, and the philosophy behind its design.
