The advantage of the Soot framework is its 3-address code representation.
This means no stack to care about. This simplifies much the analysis of code
and the application of transformations.

Example of stack vs. 3-address code:



int i1, i2;
i1 = i1 + i2

The details about this transformation are on the Soot web page. I thought it
was worth mentioning this very special property of the Soot framework.

Enough said off-topic;-)
