Refactoring has become a well-known technique for improving the code in a way that preserves behavior. The application of refactoring during development process of an object oriented or procedure oriented software improves the design and therefore the quality of software. During the evolution of software it is a requirement to refactor them in order to make it more compatible and flexible with the new environment.
