Abstract
Some limitations of object-oriented mechanisms are known to
cause code clones (e.g., extension using inheritance). Novel pro-
gramming paradigms such as feature-oriented programming (FOP)
aim at alleviating these limitations. However, it is an open issue
whether FOP is really able to avoid code clones or whether it even
facilitates (FOP-related) clones. To address this issue, we conduct
an empirical analysis on ten feature-oriented software product lines
with respect to code cloning. We found that there is a considerable
number of clones in feature-oriented software product lines and
