Source Code Search Engine

Source code search engine.
Provides an interactive interface enabling one to search across a large source code base, using the language structure of each of the languages providing more precise answers than simple string searches can produce. For any query, the Search Engine offers a list of matches with surrounding context; the use can select a specific match and immediately inspect the source file.

Features include:
- Interactive search and inspection of source code
- Search across millions of lines of code, tens of thousands of source code files
- Query in terms of language lexical constructs such as identifiers, numbers, operators, string literals or comments to minimize false positives
- Generic queries can match identifiers or string literals across multiple programming languages
- Complex queries can match complex statements
- Queries can have patterns (or regular expressions) on character strings
- Numbers can compared to values or ranges
- Language elements are normalized so escape conventions do not confound searches
- Searches ignore language-specific intervening whitespace, linebreaks and comments, providing more accurate answers
- Optional GREP-like string (regular expression) search
- Scrollable list of search hits with context
- Can handle many computer languages (Java, C#, C++, etc.)
- Translates arbitrary characters sets into a uniform representation for indexing and display
