Problem 2732. Construct a precedence graph from a code segment

A hypothetical MATLAB code segment containing n lines is given in the form of a cell array. The i-th cell contains the i-th line of the code. Each of the lines contains simple arithmetic expressions.

Now, construct an adjacency matrix of a graph containing n-vertices. The i-th vertex will represent the i-th line of the code. There should be a directed edge from i-th vertex to j-th vertex only if the values generated at i-th line are used in the j-th line.

All the variables in the code will have single letter names (e.g.: a,b,x,y etc).


C = {'a=1;'

Here, the cell array C contains a code segment. The first two lines are independent in the sense that they do not use values generated at any other lines. The third line uses information generated at line 1 and 2. The fourth line uses information generated at line 1,2 and 3.

Thus the resulting adjacency matrix will be as follows:

mat = [0 0 1 1;
       0 0 1 1;
       0 0 0 1;
       0 0 0 0];
