Although broadly available in major software development environments, refactoring tools are still underused. One of the reasons for this underuse is that existing refactoring tools assume that a developer recognizes that she is going to refactor before she even begins. In this paper, we present a flexible refactoring tool called BeneFactor that can be invoked after refactoring begins to safely complete a refactoring change.
