Google has updated its Google Code Search site for finding publicly
available source code, adding greater coverage and improvements in ranking
and access.

Launched in October 2006, Google Code Search enables developers to locate
source code on the Web, searching through billions of lines of code.

"Today we made some updates to Code Search that will hopefully make it even
easier to find the code you're looking for," said Google software engineer
Aleksander Fedorynski in a blog entry Thursday about the improvements.

Coverage capabilities now include indexing of individual files and code
snippets from all over the Web, Google said. Previously, only complete
archives, such as .zip,.tar, and repositories, including CVS and
Subversion, were indexed.

To improve ranking, Google has amended Code Search so class and method
definitions now appear closer to the top of search results for certain
queries.

Also, users now can access Code Search through several international
domains, including Brazil, China, France, and Russia.

Right after the launch, Google's Code Search was criticized as a potential
resource for hackers looking to find bugs, password information, and
proprietary code.
