One well known principle in software engineering states don’t repeat yourself, also known as the DRY principle. A very obvious violation of DRY is the application of copy/paste to create duplicates of large portions of source code within the same code base. These duplicate pieces of code, also known as code clones, have been subject to lots of research in the last two decades. In this two-part post I want to summarize those parts of the current knowledge that I find most relevant to the practitioner, especially the impact of clones on software development and how to deal with them in terms of tools and processes.
