to Share It

    PHOENIX, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at DEMO 2006, Krugle, Inc.
 ( ) unveiled its search engine for source code and
 related technical content. The Krugle search solution promises to deliver easy
 access to code and other highly relevant technical information in a single,
 convenient, easy-to-use interface.
     "Krugle is a search engine for programmers," said Krugle Co-Founder and
 CEO, Steve Larsen. "Today programming is more about efficiently assembling and
 integrating code, than it is about writing new code from scratch. The problem
 is, finding and evaluating the available code takes too much time. That's the
 problem Krugle solves."
     Finding Code:  Finding, evaluating and downloading the right code is a
 common developer task that consumes massive amounts of developer time. "This
 process has difficulties because of the way software projects and components
 are currently accessed on the Internet," notes Ken Krugler, Krugle's
 co-founder and CTO. "While current search engines are OK at finding Web pages,
 they don't crawl source code repositories, archives or knowledge bases, and
 they don't leverage the inherent structure of code to support the types of
 searches programmers need."
     Finding Answers:  Developers sift through many separate pieces of
 information (project information, documentation, license information, tips &
 hints, user reviews, legal information) that must be considered when making
 decisions on what code to use. Krugle delivers the precise information a
 programmer needs to solve their immediate problem.
     Beyond Search:  Krugle also improves communication between programmers by
 allowing them to add their commentary in a layer that floats above the source
 code. In addition, Krugle allows programmers to permanently tag code, and sets
 of search results, and easily share them with their colleagues.
     "The implications of the open source movement are dramatic and can't be
 understated," noted Chris Shipley, Executive Producer of the DEMO Conferences.
 "Everyone agrees that open source is the wave of the future, and Krugle is
 riding that wave by helping programmers find the code they need to do their
