Clone Detective for Visual Studio

Clone Detective is a new Visual Studio add-on tool available in open-source from CodePlex that allows you to analyze C# projects for code segments that are duplicated across multiple source code files.

Duplicate code can easily lead to inconsistencies and increased maintenance costs, and can be an indicator of areas of poor quality code.

Clone Detective will help developers using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 to produce clean, well factored source code by finding duplicated code in their software projects and helping with the task of refactoring to remove the duplicates.

No doubt Martin Fowler will be proud.
