How do you search related works for your papers? To be concrete I have implemented few techniques of indirect call promotion for pure C and want to share my results. But at first I want to understand if there are some existing papers about it.
I searched with Google, Google shcolar, citeseerx, microsoft academic search, acm library and semanticscholar. I found only papers on C++ devirtualization but not for pure C. I searched the papers referenced to those what I found but I still did not found anything about pure C.
Can I think my research will be uniqe and interesting for scientific community or I just failed to find existing papers?
