Zeidman Consulting Releases CodeSuite,
The Software Expert's Toolbox
CUPERTINO, CA (August 7, 2006) - Zeidman Consulting
has just released CodeSuiteTM, a suite of tools for
comparing computer source code to detect such things
as plagiarism, copyright infringement, intellectual
property theft, and patent infringement. CodeSuite incorporates
the CodeMatchTM, CodeDiffTM, and FileIsolateTM tools
as well as sophisticated post-process database filtering.
CodeSuite can also generate detailed HTML reports and
CodeMatch uses sophisticated algorithms to compare source
code files and rank them according to correlation scores.
These algorithms have been shown to produce more exact results
than any other source code comparison tool available.
CodeDiff performs a line by line comparison of source code
files. It runs much faster than CodeMatch and can be used
to give preliminary results and to pare down the number of
files for CodeMatch to examine.
According to Bob Zeidman, president of Zeidman Consulting,
"CodeMatch has been a fantastically successful tool for
copyright infringement litigation. It's become a de facto
standard at several premiere intellectual property law firms.
In some cases, though, the full power of CodeMatch wasn't
needed so we developed CodeDiff. We also built in a post-processor
that allows an expert to filter out unimportant files and
file elements to zoom right in on the plagiarism, if it exists."
Adds Zeidman, "We're expanding the company and looking
for partners to take this concept of 'context sensitive searching'
into other areas. For example, it can be tied into a search
engine for applications like finding open source code within
a code base and searching the Internet for prior art for patents.
The potential applications are vast and exciting"
A fully functional copy of CodeSuite is available from the
Zeidman Consulting website. It can be used to compare sets
of source code files of 1 megabyte or less at no charge. For
jobs over 1 megabyte, licenses must be purchased from Zeidman
CodeSuite runs on a personal computer using the Windows operating
