Searching For Your Open Source Code

One cool thing about developing free open source software is seeing where your code ends up. It is satisfying to know that bits of code you wrote end up in other projects and code bases.

There are several online services that index source code from various places like websites and online svn/cvs repositories. It makes searching for my code a breeze. This is also useful for looking up examples of code I have written in the past that I want to copy from.

  • Google Code Search:
    Search public source code for: "corey goldberg"
  • Koders Search:
    Search public source code for: "corey goldberg"
  • Krugle Code Search:
    Search public source code for: "corey goldberg"

    My favourite in your list is Krugle. Very nice interface and service.

    Good examples Corey, but for retrieving the snippets I write, I use kelpi.com, that is written in Python and also is free software.
