Google has announced that it is closing Google Code Search – the search engine which specifically crawls open source software – on 15 January, 2012. Google says that the closure is part of its current programme to focus on products that people "use two or three times a day".
The closure will see the end of a resource that opened in 2006 to help open source developers who are looking for snippets of code, under particular licenses or as part of a specific package.
