CodeCompare also offers a comparison of files or folders, but when it compares folders it also only looks to see if there are files of the same name in the folder, it does not compare the files themselves. Only two files can be compared at the same time. The system accepts .java files, but only does a textual comparison of them. It attempts to sort out moved code, but is not successful. Instead, it aligns them with code that has absolutely nothing to do with the moved portion.

It only performs a textual comparison, and is the worst system in the test on code comparisons. For text it will only accept .txt files, and was only able to reach 11/28 points. When one tries to print out the reports, it just prints out the files without any further markings.

In summary, this system is not useful for either text and program code collusion detection at university.
