Detect the license for the source code.
Use Source Code Scanner and process the scanner results.

FOSSLight Source Scanner uses source code scanners, ScanCode and SCANOSS. ScanCode detects copyright and license phrases contained in the file and SCANOSS searches OSS Name, OSS Version, download location, copyright and license information from OSSKB. Some files (ex- build script), binary files, directory and files in specific directories (ex-test) are excluded from the result. And removes words such as "-only" and "-old-style" from the license name to be printed. The output result is generated in spreadsheet format.
