Code analysis via search engine - security, and finding NetBSD code in other projects
Hauke Fath has pointed me at an
article that talks about
``Static Code Analysis Using Google Code Search'', by Dug Song.
The article describes how to search code
search engined like
Google's Code Search
Koder's code search engine.
Also from the "cool, they use my source code"-department:
Looking for NetBSD in the latter one revealed quite a number of
projects that use sources that mention NetBSD, either in copyright
messages, single functions they've copied or RCS IDs that show how the
code went from one project to another.
Here's a list of projects that
I've found use NetBSD sources in one way or other:
Cough, quite a list...
It seems libedit and the queue.h macros are NetBSD's most wanted/borrowed
Also, my guess is that the list is even a lot longer in commercial
products, but of course that's a bit hard to verify. (Anyone?)
P.S.: Here's a similar list
using Google's Code Search.
