Google code search

Filed under: bioinformatics, geekery, web — chris @ 8:42 pm

Those nice people at Google Labs have released a new toy: Google Code Search. You can search *through* publically available source code for Posix regex matches to code or filenames, and limit results to certain languages or licences. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have R in their list of recognised languages yet, a problem you will rue if you’ve ever tried to search for R code.

As you’d expect, there’s already a Firefox searchbar plugin.
