SoftGUESS: Visualization and Exploration of Code Clones in Context
Eytan Adar and Miryung Kim

We introduce SoftGUESS, a code-clone exploration system. SoftGUESS, which is built on the more general GUESS system, provides researchers and users with a mechanism to interactively explore graph structures both through direct manipulation as well as a custom language. We demonstrate SoftGUESS through a number of mini-applications to analyze both snapshot and evolutionary code-clone behavior in software systems. The mini-applications of SoftGUESS represent a novel way of looking at code-clones in context, and will hopefully form the basis for other analysis tools in the software-engineering domain.
