MOSS Plagiarism Detection Installation

MOSS (Measure Of Software Similarity) is a system for checking for plagiarism. MOSS can be setup on Autolab as follows:

  1. Obtain the script for MOSS based on the instructions given in https://theory.stanford.edu/~aiken/moss/.

  2. Create a directory called vendor at the root of your Autolab installation, i.e

    bash cd <autolab_root> mkdir -p vendor

  3. Copy the moss script into the vendor directory and name it mossnet

    bash mv <path_to_moss_script> vendor/mossnet
