# [issue13364] Duplicated Code

```New submission from skreft <skreft at gmail.com>:

By using tools like clonedigger is possible to spot some repeated code.
One file that caught my attention is Lib/decimal.py. It has many portions of duplicated code.

Here is an example:
def logical_or(self, other, context=None):
"""Applies an 'or' operation between self and other's digits."""
if context is None:
context = getcontext()

other = _convert_other(other, raiseit=True)

if not self._islogical() or not other._islogical():
return context._raise_error(InvalidOperation)

# fill to context.prec
(opa, opb) = self._fill_logical(context, self._int, other._int)

# make the operation, and clean starting zeroes
result = "".join([str(int(a)|int(b)) for a,b in zip(opa,opb)])
return _dec_from_triple(0, result.lstrip('0') or '0', 0)

def logical_xor(self, other, context=None):
"""Applies an 'xor' operation between self and other's digits."""
if context is None:
context = getcontext()

other = _convert_other(other, raiseit=True)

if not self._islogical() or not other._islogical():
return context._raise_error(InvalidOperation)

# fill to context.prec
(opa, opb) = self._fill_logical(context, self._int, other._int)

# make the operation, and clean starting zeroes
result = "".join([str(int(a)^int(b)) for a,b in zip(opa,opb)])
return _dec_from_triple(0, result.lstrip('0') or '0', 0)

ps: Even more duplicated code is found in python 2.7.
