Google Code Search

with one comment


Google have today launched Code Search, a search engine and index of source code that is collected from publicly available sources. Google claims that the new code search engine will be able to find almost any code that it’s crawler can find, but in a few specific searches I did I couldn’t find some code that I had hosted on my own server – but this is sure to improve. It does seem that the Google index of source code is a lot broader than those found at competing sites Krugle and Koders. For instance, Google Code Search will index the content of zip and tarball files on open source sites such as, while the other search sites seem to return a lot of results from sourceforge and a few other centralized repositories.
