Most of the time coding takes bits and pieces, sometimes even entire files! Do you mean citing your sources per se?

Joyce, there's no concept of plagiarism in writing software that I'm aware of. 

Did you mean a different kind of programming code?

Hi everyone

Apologies for any duplication.

Does anyone have an online guide on avoiding plagiarism specifically on programming codes for students?  Our Computer Science Department is interested in developing one and I'd rather not re-invent the wheel.
I have already found the page from University Pennsylvania.

Thank you
