Question source code library app for Subversion

Hi all,

Does anyone here use an code library for their source code? If so what is it that you use?

The reason I am asking this is because where I work we develop a multitude of applications that are written in a variety of different languages such as:
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • PHP
  • Java
  • Visual Basic 6/.NET

All projects that are developed are kept in Subversion for soruce control, however the amount of code is getting very very big. We are getting to the point where new people working on projects are re-inventing components.

What we are looking for a searchable app, where we can search for code which has been already written. Now I know that we can create something simple with both Java and PHP with their respective documentation tools, but we need something that can deal with all the languages that I have mentioned above.

I've had a quick search on SourceForge and have found nothing that matches our requirements.

If there isn't anything like that what alternatives can you suggest?

Thanks in advance...

I've used this in the past:

My current install is borked at the moment though. I've used it mostly for searching simple shell, perl, vbscript, and ruby scripts. It integrates nicely with Subversion which we also store our config files in, so those are searchable as well.

Here's another type of search engine, might be better than gonzui:

I've never used it myself, but I know it's under active development (not sure if gonzui still is?).

Those are some ideas anyway.
