  abstract =     "MuSynth takes a draft C program with holes, a test
                 suite, and optional simple hints that together specify
                 a desired functionality and performs program synthesis
                 to auto-complete the holes. First, MuSynth leverages a
                 similar-code-search engine to find potential donor code
                 (similar to the required functionality) from a corpus.
                 Second, MuSynth applies various synthesis mutations in
                 an evolutionary loop to find and modify the donor code
                 snippets to fit the input context and produce the
                 expected functionality. This paper focuses on the
                 latter, and our preliminary evaluation shows that
                 MuSynth's combination of type-based heuristics, simple
                 hints, and evolutionary search are each useful for
                 efficient program synthesis.",
