Krugle.com aims to revolutionise how developers find and use open-source code.

A California-based start-up is looking to be the next Google for developers, allowing them to search for code fragments on the Web. Krugle is designed to find source code, answers to technical developer-related questions, and information on new languages.

According to the Web site, a feature called Rich Search, "provides information on thousands of technical topics and APIs, including definitions, top links for sample code, documentation, and links to organisations and community oriented sites involved in the topic, such as standards bodies."

Site founder Ken Krugler says the site aims to cover around 100 million pages. Developers will be able to annotate code and documentation, create bookmarks, and save search results.

The site is currently slated to go live on the 8th of March, and interested developers can sign up to be e-mailed as soon as it is available.
