In all applications of clone detection it is important to have precise and efficient clone identification algorithms. This paper proposes and outlines a new algorithm, KClone for clone detection that incorporates a novel combination of lexical and local dependence analysis to achieve precision, while retaining speed. The paper also reports on the initial results of a case study using an implementation of KClone with which we have been experimenting. The results indi- cate the ability of KClone to find types-1,2, and 3 clones compared to token-based and PDG-based techniques. The paper also reports results of an initial empirical study of the performance of KClone compared to CCFinderX.
