Re: How prone are plagiarism-detection tools to false-positi

I think a simple way to think about this is -- determining a "diff" between two pieces of code is a task whose complexity depends on the syntax of the languages. For example, it's trivial to change variable names in most languages while retaining the behavior of the program. Others allow t...
