My final goal is refactoring code written by my coworkers. So, is there a tool which can find files differing in only few words?
(Edit: this is for a Mac, but others might like non-Mac answers too.)
Simian does this for the source code of some languages. It is best at finding blatant copy-n-paste coding. Its developments seems to have stalled, but it works good enough.
