Software the English start-up , the “Monoidics’ Infer Static Analyzer” will therefore facilitate the task of Facebook developers, in particular by providing them with a “clean” code, a code which would guarantee security and saved memory. The scan tool works on all sizes of applications, and can recognize which parts of a piece of software have been updated. In other words, a serious time saver on the pace of updates for Facebook, on the various iOS and Android mobile operating systems.
