     1\section{Changes in response to the reviewer's comments}
     5We have made more explicit reference to a key WCET survey paper, in
     6particular noting that it is a useful source of information about
     7commercial tools such as AbsInt.
     9\item We have altered and improved the example to remove some
     10distracting ambiguity and demonstrate a parametric time bound.  The
     11text now identifies the added code by more than just its colour.  The
     12later sections now refer back to the example to illustrate the effects
     13of each technique.
    116We've removed the paragraph on logic programming languages because one
    217of the reviewers pointed out that standard Prolog may have the
    318necessary features, which we haven't tried.  Thus we felt it was best
    4 not to claim anything about logic programming.
     19not to claim anything about logic programming at this time.
    6 The example has been slightly altered to show a parametric time bound.
    7 The text now identifies the added code by more than just its colour.
     22We have been more explicit about the type of code generated by the
     23Lustre compiler, and what kinds of loop can be handled automatically
     24by the Cost plugin and where loop iteration bounds come from.
    9 Section 2 has been restructured to give a clearer comparison of
    10 existing approaches with CerCo.
     26\item The structure of the document has been greatly improved.
     27Section 2 has been restructured and broken up into subsections to give
     28a clearer comparison of existing approaches with CerCo.
     29Section 4 has been reorganised to highlight the connections between
     30the different parts of the work and a short overview provided to help
     31the reader understand the significance of each part of the work.
    12 Section 4 has been reorganised to highlight the connections between
    13 the different parts of the work.
     33\item A clearer distinction is made between the core contribution of
     34the compiler --- which provides local cost information in the source
     35code and thus is largely agnostic to how loops are structured and what
     36kind of data structures are used --- and the cost synthesis work which
     37provides higher-level costs using it.
    15 The citation of a survey of state-of-the-art WCET tools has been made
    16 more explicit as a source of information about tools such as AbsInt.
     39\item The text has been extensively revised to be easier to read, and
     40to make minor corrections, including those identified by the reviewers.
