Google Code Search

October 6, 2006

Another feather in Google’s cap. Google announced its Code Search beta project yesterday. It allows you to search through a huge code base. Its yet another good step for Google but it can certainly do with some more features for instance displaying results by grouping together the code from same project etc.

On top of every thing, it needs to be a bit more intelligent in bringing up the results. As it stands, you need to have a great deal of idea about what you are searching. If I want to search code for ‘parser’, it should ideally bring up code from any parser project instead of pulling up files that have parser in comments or code snippets. But then again ideal world and ideal software only exists in ideas :).
