( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hallo monks,
I am a new owner of a huge project, that currently contain 2.5M lines of code.
The first version was written in an internal language we developed, which was VERY simple - no loops, no subroutines, no modules, no conditions, and when we moved to the new version we created a converter, which converted the code to Perl.
The convertion was simple, therefore I had 3000 flat script, and today I have 3000 flat script, just in Perl. My new task is to take those scripts, find code duplications, and produce modules and subroutines.
I am looking for a tool that will find the duplications for me.

Looking in the net I found several tools:
http://pmd.sourceforge.net/cpd.html
http://www.blue-edge.bg/download.html
and some commercial ones.

The problem is - they do not support Perl.
Before I run and create a support for Perl in those projects (as suggested in http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2003/03/12/pmd_cpd.html), I would like to know whether there is another solution, or another tool that already has Perl support.

TIA,
shushu
