Introducing, a regexp code search engine

Hi, I hereby announce a new Debian project: Debian Code Search. Debian Code Search is a search engine for program source code within Debian.

It allows you to search all ≈ 17000 source packages,
containing 130 GiB of FLOSS source code (including Debian
packaging) with regular expressions.

You can use the search engine at
Here are a few sample queries:

The corresponding thesis (and source code, of course) will be released

I hope you find it useful and would love to hear your feedback.

Best regards,
