Does anyone have a favorite tool for finding duplicate (copy/pasted) code? Preferably one that is Eclipse based or runs through Ant.
I'm aware that there are a number of tools out there for finding duplicate code, but sometimes finding out what people are really using is more valuable. Your opinions helped greatly when picking a code coverage tool.
I've tried a view, but I didn't really use any of them regularly. I think it's because I don't find much value in refactoring code that I don't currently touch anyway, and than I typically spot the duplication without the use of a tool.
Another thing is that those tools can only spot syntactic duplication. Most often, it's the semantic duplication that's killing me - two parts of code that are doing the same thing in slightly different ways...
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
