This tool is designed to perform a statistic and metric analysis of source codes written in the ANSI C programming language. The analysis result provided by the tool is a numerically expressed comparison of source codes by means of their mutual similarity that can be later used for e.g. proofing plagiarism, evaluating codes\\\' similarity, identify the same (and thus redundant) parts of the code, etc.
The tool for the metric analysis is designed to be a regular compiler; therefore it contains most parts of a regular ANSI C compiler. It creates source code footprints for the comparation tool for faster source code comparison. The tools (analyzer and comparator) use a shared library that is designed for source code analysis and it can be extended - via some moderate modifications - to support other programming languages too.
