flay version 2.2.0 has been released!

Published 2013-04-09 @ 17:43

Flay analyzes code for structural similarities. Differences in literal values, variable, class, method names, whitespace, programming style, braces vs do/end, etc are all ignored. Making this totally rad.


2.2.0 / 2013-04-09

Semantic versioning doesn’t take into account how AWESOME a release is. In this case, it severely falls short. I’d jump to 4.0 if I could.

  • 2 major enhancements:

    • Added –fuzzy (ie copy, paste, & modify) duplication detection.
    • Added –liberal, which changes the way prune works to identify more duplication.
  • 12 minor enhancements:

    • Added -# to turn off item numbering. Helps with diffs to compare runs over time.
    • Added Sexp#+.
    • Added Sexp#code_index to specify where *code starts in some sexps.
    • Added Sexp#has_code?.
    • Added Sexp#initalize_copy to propagate file/line/modified info.
    • Added Sexp#modified, #modified=, and #modified?.
    • Added Sexp#split_at(n). (Something I’ve wanted in Array for ages).
    • Added Sexp#split_code.
    • Added mass and diff options to rake debug.
    • Added rake run task w/ mass, diff, and liberal options
    • Made report’s sort more stable, so I can do better comparison runs.
    • Wrapped Sexp#[] to propagate file/line/modified info.
