Code cloning negatively affects industrial software and threatens intellectual property. This paper presents
a novel approach to detecting cloned software by using a bijective matching technique. The proposed
approach focuses on increasing the range of similarity measures and thus enhancing the precision of the
detection. This is achieved by extending a well-known stable-marriage problem (SMP) and demonstrating
how matches between code fragments of different files can be expressed. A prototype of the proposed
approach is provided using a proper scenario, which shows a noticeable improvement in several features
of clone detection such as scalability and accuracy.
