Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Text::Plagiarized link

[ #25101 ]

I've posted the code for Text::Plagiarized and asked for lots of advice.

Wouldn't it be ironic if someone other than me posted that module to the CPAN? :) (No, that's not a suggestion!)

  • I agree with the ideas (presented before) about changing the name. I'd also point out that there's a simple lockout to the description you provided. Out of order/Extra sentances.

    However, to get past that you'd actually have to go sentance by sentance, matrix style.

    Obviously, choosing a good (and unsused name) and getting it posted will sooner get folks sending you suggestions and patches.

    • Perhaps my description was misleading. I am going sentence by sentence. After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that my method can be defeated by a writer pulling apart sentences and recombining them into new sentences, but at that point, it starts getting harder for a human to prove plagiarism, much less a piece of software.

      Name suggestions for the module are welcome.

      • I am going sentence by sentence.
        In that case, if you put your sentances out of order in the example it would better illustrate the capabilities.


        I hate naming stuff. Leave it up to me and you get

    And then you’ll write Perl::Plagiarized? :)
