The purpose of this thesis is to study the plagiarism detection method aiming at C++ programs. We proposed the corresponding preventive measures by summarizing the common types of plagiarism attack through observation and statistical analysis. Using text analysis, structure analysis, and variable analysis would prevent misjudgment. Finally, we implemented the CPD(C++ Plagiarism Detection) system and compare it with other existing systems, and the experimental result shows us that our system can detect more kinds of plagiarism attacks than other existing systems.
