Google is trying out a new search service designed to make it easier for computer programmers to find bits of code online.
Google Code Search will make it easier for software developers to find programming code directly, without having to trawl through groups, forums, and discussions to find it.
The search engine is aimed at both professional programmers and students or IT enthusiasts who want to improve their coding and software development.
The search also allows programmers to look for specific coding terms, restrict the search to certain computer languages, or look for bits of code that fall under a specified licensing agreement.
I think this is really cool. I personally use Google a lot to find bits of code in certain programming languages as examples to learn from, and this should make it a lot easier and effective.
I think a lot of developers will be happy with this new tool; Another great product idea by Google.
