MOSS Measure Of Software Similarity Arguments

Posted on 2009-02-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hi I recently started using MOSS.  I have a little issue that I don't understand though.  When I submit multiple files, I get a report with the similarities among all the files.


However when I submit only one file I don't get any results.  It always says, two lines matched, no matches found.

I know I must be doing something wrong because I have submitted the same file in the past and I should had been recorded in the server.  This is my syntax:

perl -l (language) file1 file2

Is there an extra parameter I'm supposed to use to just compare to files stored in the server?

    Accepted Solution

    They don't keep files you submit (nor the reports), or their servers would explode in a month or two. You have to submit every time all the files you want to compare
