Krugle to power code search on IBM's DeveloperWorks

Krugle, the code search engine, will be powering the code search feature on IBM's DeveloperWorks. The deal is another feather in Krugle's cap, which also powers code search on SourceForge.net, CollabNet, and the Yahoo! Developer Network.

Krugle, the code search engine, will be powering the code search feature on IBM's DeveloperWorks. The deal is another feather in Krugle's cap, which also powers code search on SourceForge.net, CollabNet, and the Yahoo! Developer Network.

Here's a quote from an article at EarthTimes.org:

IBM has one of the most advanced developer communities in the industry," said Steve Larsen, CEO and co-founder Krugle. "They understand the value of making code samples more easily accessible to developers. IBM also understands the importance of community and collaboration. Integrating Krugle's code spaces, comments and collaboration capabilities into developerWorks enables the success of developers who use IBM products."

ZDNet reports that soon after Krugle's announcement, Koders, another code search company, has stated that they have also been selected for indexing source code from DeveloperWorks.

Here's a quote from a blog on CNET:

A lot of code is involved: Krugle has indexed more than 1,400 articles on DeveloperWorks, producing more than 29,000 source files with more than 4 million lines of code. The index includes code in more than 35 languages including C, XML and Java.

While Google has its own search feature for code, the increased success of Krugle and similar sites proves that there is immense potential in search targeted at enterprises.
