Detection And Analysis Of Software Clones
MetadataShow full item record
Effective detection of code clones is important for software maintenance. Code clones introduce difficulty in software maintenance and lead to bug propagation. Detection of duplicated bugs within a piece of software is challenging, especially when duplications are semantic in nature, where textually two pieces of code are different although they perform the same task. Similar issues can also be observed in malware detection or more precisely, obfuscated code detection. In this dissertation, we first conduct a comprehensive study on state-of-the-art clone detection tools and report an empirical ...
