Google Code search is a powerful open-source code search launched in October 2006.  It gives you the public source code and the class definitions of almost many languages and web script technologies.

Though it is a beta version, has been optimized well and gives accurate results.  Take any programming language keyword and type it as a search keyword, It instantly gives you the necessary commands and descriptions with external links and class definitions.

A simple Print command gives you all the possible options from Java, C, Python and also shell script to name a few. Different technology users would now be able to get instant help without going through particular websites or links.


  1. Open Google code search using the link
  2. Type any keyword or function name and it will give you the entire list for different languages.
    Interesting thing is that Google stores a cached copy of all source code and gives you the dump of it.
