CVSSearch searches for code fragments using CVS comments. Since a CVS comment describes the lines of code involved in the commit and that this description will typically hold for many future versions. CVSSearch lets you to better search and understand the most recent version of the code by looking at previous versions. For each line of code in the most recent version, we build a profile consisting of all CVS comments that involved that line in past commits. This profile is used not only to search the most recent version of the code but also to understand what the code does --- including its motivation and history.
