SourceForge.net has embedded Krugle's search engine into the world's largest repository of open source software. The search engine gives developers direct, contextual access to the underlying code of the site's 145,000 open source projects.
According to a study by Evans Data Corporation, developers spend a quarter of their time trying to find code. By adding Krugle's search functionality into the existing SourceForge.net environment, developers are now able to search not only for projects, but for the code that those projects are built on. Looks like Google missed out on this one, with their Google CodeSearch.
More details on Krugle.
Krugle, the code search engine for developers was founded in 2005 around the idea of contextual search. Krugle's code search engine makes it easy for developers to find the code they need plus the related technical and licensing information to evaluate and use that code. Krugle lets developers save their search information, share it, and get comments and feedback on code. This essential development process of searching, evaluating and communicating are directly aimed at developers' needs.
