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

WCopyFind is one of the oldest and most well-know of the collusion detection systems. It was previously tested in 2008, but without very convincing results. It is able to compare multiple files at a time with each other. Identical text is displayed in red, different text in black. In the code test it only reached 5 points, just barely above CodeCompare. As soon as text was moved, it jumped over the rest of the text.

For the text test it was slightly better, although it also had problems with texts in which multiple words were changed. The reports are difficult to read with only the changes marked, but it does produce a report for each pair of files checked.

In summary, the system is partially useful for finding text collusion and not useful for finding code collusion at university
