Krugle aspires to be the Google of software code search,\n even referring to itself as a verb. And recently, Krugle has\n started to become the go-to search site for open-source\n developers, partnering with key websites, including\n SourceForge.net, the leading repository for open-source\n software projects, to embed Krugle search. Krugle also\n announced a similar partnership with CollabNet, a community of\n 1 million developers.Cofounder and CTO Ken Krugler says Krugle soothes a pain\n point for developers: They spend 25 percent or more of their\n time searching for lines of code to perform certain functions\n that may already exist. There's no sense in writing code that's\n already been written, says Krugler.How does Krugle simplify code search on SourceForge?\n Developers typically visit SourceForge to find a project\n similar to the one they\u2019re doing. But they end up having\n to download the whole project. Krugle lets them search through\n the project to see if it fits the bill without downloading it\n entirely.Krugle gives software developers one thing they need most,\n time, says John Andrews, CEO of Evans Data, a research\n firm."If you could shave 10 percent of that [search] time off,\n that is a huge productivity improvement either in costs\n savings, revenue generation or just spare time," Andrews\n says.Google is still the first stop for many open-source\n developers, but as the volume of open-source code grows, as\n companies use more open source for development internally, and\n as more software companies open their previously proprietary\n code, Google may not be able to keep up, says Andrews.Krugle's next venture will be search for open-source\n development within enterprises: An enterprise product currently\n in beta is slated for general release in the second half of\n 2007.
