Programmers often copy and paste code so that they can reuse the existing code to complete a similar task. Many times, modifications to the newly pasted code include renaming all instances of an identifier, such as a variable name, consistently throughout the fragment. When these modifications are done manually, undetected inconsistencies and errors can result in the code, for example, a single instance can be missed and mistakenly not renamed. To help programmers avoid making this type of copy… CONTINUE READING
