The search engine is C/C++ syntax aware so you can search for specific elements such as functions, macros, classes, comments, etc. The site is built upon many open source products including: MySQL and Lucene for the database, CodeWorker to parse the code, PHP and Apache for the website and GeSHi for syntax highlighting. I'm currently looking for suggestions on what sort of 'interesting statistics' I could create from 275+ million lines of open source C/C++ code."
