Feature proposal

Oct 29, 2009 at 1:05 PM

First of all - thanks for excellent job!!! Very well done!


However I would like to propose a feature to consider.

It will be very cool to have ability to mark clone class for exclusion, to be ignored. Let say I have complex property setter, same in different layers. I know it is duplication, but have no other choice...

I would like to eliminate it from report if used exactly as stored in library and get warning if implementation is similar but different. Do you see the point?

Even if half done, just skipping warnings on some code marked to ignore this way, will be useful.

Thanks again!

Hi Cnemo7539,

I am glad you like our project! Unfortunately, we do not have much time right now to implement new features for Clone Detective any time soon. However, for our next version we are planning to implement the following features:

  • Blacklisting. This will allow clones to be excluded.
  • Fuzzy Clones. This will also find duplicated source code that is "almost" identical.
  • VB.NET Support. Speaks for itself :-)

Thanks for using Clone Detective and stay tuned!

All the best,
