Abstract

Nowadays, a slew of clone detection approaches exists, producing a lot of clone data. These data have to be analyzed manually or automatically. It is not trivial to derive conclusions or even actions from the analyzed data. In particular, we argue that it is often unclear how to present the clone information to the user. As a result, we present our idea of task-oriented clone presentation based on use cases. Hence, we propose five use cases that have to be addressed and suggest clone presentation techniques that we consider to be appropriate.
