Generic code duplication detection tool

By | October 22, 2023

I’m looking for a code duplication tool that is language agnostic. It’s easy to find language specific code duplication tools (for Java, C, PHP, …), but I’d like to run some code duplication analysis on a templates in a custom syntax.

I don’t care about advanced parsing of the syntax, just straight line based raw string comparison is fine. Whitespace insensitive matching would be a plus, but not required. (It’s not that hard to normalize/eliminate whitespace myself.)

Does anybody know a tool that can be (mis)used for something like this?
