<b>Context:</b> Clone benchmarks are essential to the assessment and improvement of clone detection tools and algorithms. Among existing benchmarks, Bellon's benchmark is widely used by the research community. However, a serious threat to the validity of this benchmark is that <i>reference</i> clones it contains have been manually validated by Bellon alone.(More)
Cloned code often complicates code maintenance and evolution and must therefore be effectively detected. One of the biggest challenges for clone detectors is to reduce the amount of irrelevant clones they found, called false positives. Several benchmarks of true and false positive clones have been introduced, enabling tool developers to compare, assess and(More)
