Generalized Software Narrative and Trace

In the past we viewed software traces and logs as temporarily ordered event sequences. Since events are just memory data we have a map

T  -> M

as can be seen in the definition of a software trace. Here we generalize the domain to any arbitrary set, for example, it can be a list of indexes or pointers or even memory itself. The latter map can give us narrative chains such as

M -> M -> M -> M

and even give us a grand unification of memory and log analysis and the possibility to apply software narratology to memory dump analysis as well. We talk about it soon and provide some generalized software narrative examples.
