    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.
