Document Type Dissertation/Thesis


The problem of software reuse has plagued the programmer's world ever since there were programs to write. Many attempts with varying degrees of success have been made to address this issue at many different levels of abstraction. In this project, I addressed the issue at the code snippet level. My goal in this project was to create a wiki-style code snippet repository that provides users the ability to query and contribute snippets of useful source code. This project addresses the challenge of software reuse amongst software developers.
