To Enhance Type 4 Clone Detection in Clone Testing

  title={To Enhance Type 4 Clone Detection in Clone Testing},
  author={M. Scholar},
The means of software reuse is copying and modifying block of code that detect cloning. As a survey, it is observed that 20-30% of module in system may be cloned. So it is mandatory to detect clones in system to reduce replication and improve reusability. Code clone is similar or duplicate code in source code that is created either by replication or some modifications. Clone is a persistent form of Software Reuse that effect on maintenance of large software. In previous research, the researcher… Expand

Cloneless: Code Clone Detection via Program Dependence Graphs with Relaxed Constraints
This thesis outlines a method of detecting clones using a program dependence graph and subgraph isomorphism to identify similar subgraphs, ultimately illuminating clones. Expand


The hybrid approach which is made up of two techniques, one is textual and another one is metric based approach for detecting code clone of all types in open source software system and shows that a hybrid approach is lightweight technique which gives accurate result being less complex. Expand

Using Slicing to Identify Duplication in Source Code
The design and initial implementation of a tool that finds clones and displays them to the programmer and uses program dependence graphs (PDGs) and program slicing to find isomorphic PDG subgraphs that represent clones is described. Expand
Experiment on the automatic detection of function clones in a software system using metrics
A technique to automatically identify duplicate and near duplicate functions in a large software system using metrics extracted from the source code using the tool Datrix/sup TM/. Expand
Duplicate code detection using anti-unification
A new algorithm for finding software clones, conceptually independent of the source language of the analyzed programs, working at the level of abstract syntax trees, that considers that two sequences of statements form a clone if one of them can be obtained from the other by replacing some subtrees.

Testing the Product Propagation -system Testing Using the Benefits of Product Lines - Acknowledgements
Product line development is a successful approach to software re-use and can save a large amount of project resources when applied. At SEMC a product line strategy was introduced in 2002. Since theExpand

  • 2001
This approach to identifying similar code in programs based on finding similar subgraphs in attributed directed graphs considers not only the syntactic structure of programs but also the data flow within (as an abstraction of the semantics). Expand
