Google turned off Code Search earlier this week. Creating and launching the initial public version of Code Search was my first project at Google, and, like many programmers, I'll miss it.

To mark the occasion, I have posted at swtch.com/~rsc/regexp/regexp4.html an explanation of how Code Search worked, and at code.google.com/p/codesearch a set of command-line tools to run regular expression searches against large amounts of code, quickly. It's obviously not a complete replacement, but it's the core of what Code Search did, and now you can run it on your own machine.

I want to thank everyone at Google who worked on or supported Code Search over the past five years. There are too many to name individually, but it was truly a team effort and a lot of fun.

P.S. Perhaps the best picture of source code ever published: blog.sfgate.com/techchron/2006/10/04/coders-start-your-search-engines/

It's official! +Cameron McCormack and I are co-organizing a Browser Miniconf at LCA 2012. Press release here: http://lca2012.linux.org.au/media/news/33. CfP here: http://mcc.id.au/BrowserMiniconf/LCA2012/CallForPapers.

From the CfP:


Proposals for any presentation surrounding open source browsers are welcome. Some suggested topics:
* Browser internals, from bird's-eye right down to deep detail.
— Example titles: “1000 foot overview of the Firefox code-base”, “implementing accelerated compositing of layers in WebKit”
* Integration of browsers with platform libraries and distributions.
— Example titles: “exposing Gecko to Gtk+ developers”, “why distros and browsers can’t all just get along”
* The browser development process.
— Example titles: “open source browsers, standardisation, and the web”, “Hacking Chrome – how hard can it be?”, “Why is the browser like a kernel?”
* Browser landscape/history/wars.
— Example titles: “Why did JavaScript just get 10x faster, and why does it matter?”

So ... anyone interested in giving a talk? :)
