—Sherlock Holmes in The Adventure of the Reigate Puzzle
In this part I discuss object code correlation and source/object code correlation. Object code correlation is the result of comparing object code files to other object code files. Source/object code correlation is the result of comparing source code files to object code files. Both object code correlation and source/object code correlation have the same mathematical framework as source code correlation.
