Plagiarism and clone detection plays an important role in software security protection, software maintenance and license issues. Source-code similarity detection method can be classified as string-based, token-based, parse-tree-based and program-dependency-based. All of these approaches have certain limitations and cannot meet the requirements when the source code is large and may produce false positives. But, parse-tree based detection improves the detection ability and efficiency. This paper describes method and statement based source code similarity detection, which detects the simple plagiarized code like exact match, near exact match and longest common sequence using multi-agent based detection which will perform the detection automatically.
