I mean, my comment was pretty straight forward as to the relation? The book has full, detailed code listings and provides a vm with runnable code, you end the book building an automatic exploitation engine for a C++ program, so it does cover HLLs? The binaries in the book are all C/C++ programs. I guess I don't really get the comment(no offense taken), given that techniques like symbex are used on binaries written in HLLs. The paper itself is a survey of the tradeoffs inherent in different implementations of symbex. So, if you want to get a sense of what symbex is, read the paper and follow up with some of the endnotes, if you want to build an application that actually uses symbex buy the book and work through it. Hope this helps!
