1- which type of code clones clone detective detects?I mean type I or II or III?

2- is there any normalization applied on source code such as removing comments and whitespaces?

Hi Rowyda,

1) Clone Detective for Visual Studio detects type I and type II clones, but does NOT detect type III clones, unfortunately.

2) Internally in the detection, comments and whitespaces are ignored and all identifiers are replaced with "id". However, the input files (i.e. your source code) of course remains unchanged.
