  abstract =     "Managing and curating software is a time consuming
                 process particularly as programming languages,
                 libraries, and execution environments change. To
                 support the engineering of software, we propose
                 applying a GP-based continuous learning system to all
                 useful software. We take the position that search-based
                 itemization and analysis of all commonly used software
                 is feasible, in large part, because the requirements
                 that people place on software can be used to bound the
                 search space to software which is of high practical
                 use. By repeatedly reusing the information generated
                 during the search process we hope to attain a
                 higher-level, but also more rigorous, understanding of
                 our engineering material: source code.",
