|[Freecode has moved to freshmeat.net. The link below has been updated. -Ed.]|
Freecode.com has lots of source code, in a variety of languages, arranged in neat little categories for your convenience. The major categories on their front page are:
CGI Programming (cookies, data manipulation, debugging, form processing, libraries, redirection)
Chat/Conferencing (bulletin boards, chat, guestbooks)
Database Management (file managers)
Email (form to email, mailing list management, send/receive)
Graphics (business charts, image creation, image display, image processing, slideshow)
HTML Authoring (HTML color pickers, HTML converters, HTML validation, link verifier, macro language, source code documentation, website management)
Internet Protocols (DNS, echo, encryption, FTP, HTTP, NNTP, ping, sockets, telnet, time, whois, winsock)
Online Applications (Advertisements, auctions, bug tracking, calculators, calendars, classified ads, games, postcards, shopping carts, surveys, tests, text editors, weather forecasts)
User Interface Components (animated text, buttons, clocks, fonts, libraries, menus, random text, tickers)
Web Hosting Tools (access counters, HTTP servers, page statistics, password controlled access, website promotion, website searching)
When you click on one of the major categories you go to a page organized by subcategory with links to each program arrayed beneath the subcategory. For example, the Web Hosting Tools page starts out like this:
Count 32-bit (C/C++) [titles link to code pages]
Count will generate inline GIF images
that display the current number of raw
page hits and/or the current time
Count+Stat provides the power, and
expansibility of a high priced
Under the Access Counters subcategory alone there are thirteen different programs in three languages (C/C++, Perl, and Java).
If you're working on a programming project, especially if you're venturing into coding territory where you have little experience, you just might find something at Freecode.com that will make your life a little easier.
