F*cking programming

Filed under

Yesterday I stumbled onto a delightful tool from Google Labs: Code Search.

Turns out Google is now crawling through source code. The GoogleBot, in its never-ending quest for sentience, searches inside tars, zips, and even dives into CVS and Subversion repositories. As Code Search is targeted at programmers, you can perform fantastically powerful queries using POSIX extended regular expressions.

Granted access to billions of lines of code and the awesome power of Google’s search technology, I did what any rational, thinking programmer would do: I typed in some profanity and hit enter.

In tribute to the valiant struggles of coders everywhere, please enjoy:

The best in programming profanity

You'll always fine one profane incident in a sea of programmers and billions of LOCs.
