Source code reuse is a common practice in software development. Since industrial developers may accidentally reuse source files developed by open source software, clone detection tools are used to detect open source files in their closed source project. To execute a clone detection, developers need a database of existing open source software. While a web-service providing clone detection using a centralized database is likely useful, industrial developers are not allowed to submit their source… CONTINUE READING
