code2seq: Generating Sequences from Structured Representations of Code
The ability to generate natural language sequences from source code snippets has a variety of applications such as code summarization, documentation, and retrieval. Sequence-to-sequence (seq2seq) models, adopted from neural machine-translation (NMT), have achieved state-of-the-art performance on these tasks by treating source code as a sequence of tokens. We present CODE2SEQ: an alternative approach that leverages the syntactic structure of programming languages to better encode source code.
