Google Code Search Shows Function Outline

Now when you look for bits and pieces at Google Code Search, you can switch to an Outline view additional to the existing Files view. In the (presumably) new Outline view, you will see a linked list of functions and their parameters. This does not work with all kinds of programming languages yet (like Visual Basic), but it worked in some when I tried (like JavaScript).

Google Code Search was released in 2006 and allows you to search all kinds of publicly available source code, including code contained in zipped files. You can use the “lang” operator, as in lang:javascript, to restrict your search to specific languages. As of around March this year, Google also sometimes shows Google Code Search results directly in their main web results.
