Software Reuse Information Retrieval Source Code Documentation
Institute of Information Theories and Applications FOI ITHEA
In the context of Software Reuse providing techniques to support source code retrieval has been
widely experimented. However, much effort is required in order to find how to match classical Information
Retrieval and source code characteristics and implicit information. Introducing linguistic theories in the software
development process, in terms of documentation standardization may produce significant benefits when applying
Information Retrieval techniques. The goal of our research is to provide a tool to improve source code search and
retrieval In order to achieve this goal we apply some linguistic rules to the development process.
