Plagiarism in the sense of "Theft of intellectual property" has been around for as long as humans have produced work of art and research. However, easy access to the Web, large databases, and telecommunication in general, has turned plagiarism into a serious problem for educational institutions. "Plagiarism attacks the fundamental principles of scholarship academics and foundations upon which the academic community rests." For the faculty it is very difficult to find plagiarism therefore some plagiarism detection tools are used like J-plag, MOSS Plague, YAP, etc. It supports Java, C#, C, C++, Scheme, and natural language text but does not support for detection in UNIX shell script programming.
