DIE HOCHMÜTIGE DOHLE UND DER PFAU

Einst lebte eine Dohle, voll von eitlem Stolz, die stahl sich Federn, die dem Pfau entfallen warn und putzte sich damit. Das eigne Dohlenvolk ver- achtend trat sie in der schönen Pfauen Reihn. Der Unver- schämten reißt man hier die Federn aus, jagt sie mit Schnäbeln. Und die Dohle, bös verbleit will wieder nun betrübt zu ihrem Volk zurück. Die aber stoßen sie von sich, mit herbem Schimpf. Und eine derer, die zuvor verachtet, sprach zu ihr “Hätt’ unsre Lebensart dir vormals conveniert, hätt’st du, was die Natur dir schenkte, akzeptiert, dann wär dir weder jene Schande widerfahrn noch müsstest du zum Unglück jetzt verstoßen sein.”

Diese Version von Aesops Fabel ist aus Wilfried Strohs Sammlung von Übersetzungen von Jan Novák: “Aesopia”, die auf Geschichten von Phaedrus basieren.

Summary

This tool can only compare two files with each other, not an entire class set. One can choose two directories, but then it also only compares if the file names in each directory are the same, not if the content of the files is the same.

The report is given as a side-by-side, but the same color is used for the syntax highlighting and identical text highlighting. It is difficult to see where moved code has been identified, and the summaries are rather cryptic.

For the text test, a plugin converted .doc and .pdf files to .txt, but they don’t work well. Sometimes text is cut off, other times a paragraph is reduced to a single line. At least umlauts are recognized correctly. The system only does a textual comparison. It found some small changes, but had trouble with larger changes to the test.

In summary, this system is not suited for university use in detecting collusion.
