I read the webpage in question. It is very impressive indeed.

Yet this NN seems to have failed to learn most the line-to-line structural patterns of valid C code such as declaring variables before use, initializing/computing values before returning them. Both the average number of lines citing a given variable and the average number of variables with the code seem non-representative.

Even the counter in the FOR loop?

QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunbtw, source article!Thanks! It's pretty clear that these recurrent neural networks can learn many of the patterns in corpora of strings but only over a relative limited horizon of a few dozen or so characters. For example, the RNNs for both Linux code and Wikipedia miss the macro-structure pattern that a given block of text usually contains repetition of key tokens (e.g., a wikipedia article might mention the same country or person multiple times or a chunk of Linux code would have several references to each key variable). And it totally misses macro patterns in C code such as declaring a variable before it is used, initializing a variable before it is used, and computing a variable before it is returned.
