Search Engine for Programming Code
An article at Newsforge pointed me to Koders ( http://www.koders.com ) a search engine for finding programming code. Nifty.
The front page allows you to specify keywords, sixteen languages (from ASP to VB.NET) and sixteen licenses (from AFL to ZPL — fortunately there’s an information page to explain all those abbreviations.)
I searched Perl, all licenses, for “random number” and got 12 results. Results include the name of the program (often not useful) a snippet, the language, the LOCs (I think this is “Lines of Code”, as opposed to “Library of Congress”) and pointers to resources.
Click on the name of the program and you’ll get information on the project and copyright information, and all the code at koders.com. External links point to the home of the project/code.
