  I suggest you to look at my software, GetReuse and its SDK:

  The formula for the calculation of the similarity is based on the
scientific research. Any other "good" method of calculations should
produce results that are equivalent in some terms to the GetReuse
results. I have not wrote a paper yet; the formula is a improvement
of the formula from . Unfortunately,
I froze the project but the current code is tested and should work well.
