C++: Clone Code detection, is this some kind of Star Wars thing?

Clones, they exist everywhere in today's world right?  No… Oh.  Well, in Star Wars all of the guys who wear white fighting suits are clones right?  But what about code clones?  I might be only person who is too lazy to create reusable code in all of my writing of code, but apparently there are a few others.  And when you modify one clone, wouldn't it be nice to check for the other clone?  Improve the quality of your code right?  Or you could create a class and just overload the class methods when you need to.  Your choice.

Check out this video at:


This is a short video on checking your code for matching clones.

Clones in Star Wars are cool, at least in one of the movies.  Code Clones are simply a way that we all write code, and code generally starts to have these similarities.


Real Biological Mammal Clones?  Well that is not my problem, I just write code and give talks.
