Code clones have been studied for long, and there is strong evidence that they are a major source of software faults. The copying of code has been studied within software engineering mostly in the area of clone analysis. Software clones are regions of source code which are highly similar; these regions of similarity are called clones, clone classes, or clone pairs In this paper a hybrid approach using metric based technique with the combination of text based technique for detection and reporting of clones is proposed. The Proposed work is divided into two stages selection of potential clones and comparing of potential clones using textual comparison. The proposed technique detects exact clones on the basis of metric match and then by text match.
