We are handing in our code as a university assignment. all the students get as much help as possible from each other and we even have some similar codes (please bare in mind that this is our first time writing a code) , however, the lecturer has mentioned that students are not allowed to copy each others work or even get help, he claims he has a very good software that checks and finds out if people cheated. i was wondering how the program works (i.e. if it looks at the name of the variables or the structure etc) and if it is possible to trick it (not that i have copied from anyone ) just out of curiosity.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
