Before you Code something new - Search for it.

How many times have you coded something from scratch only to find in the end that such a code/functionality already existed and you would have only needed to make use of it.

Well, Google Code Search is a code search engine which crawls and indexes publicly hosted archives (.tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar, and .zip) and CVS and Subversion repositories. It’s very light weight and accurate supporting the usage of regular expressions and advanced operators for quick filtering.

I like to use Google Code Search for because it’s fast and simple.
