Geek heaven in Google code search

October 5, 2006

There are some very excited geeks in the building today (including me) as Google have released another beta to their Labs. Google Code Search allows users to search open source code from across the web. It’s actually really good, I’ve been able to find some really accurate results and have saved myself some time by finding something I’ve used already!

Users can search using regular expressions or by specifying file type or language. I found that by searching on the type of function I am looking for I often find it in some programmers comments in the code.

Fantastic resource for anyone interested in coding any languages!
