I am thinking to implement a common search engine for Squeak IDE to
facilitate smalltalk codes searching. I Noticed that the current message
names search, class search, and the top search bar are not integrated into
one powerful yet efficient search UI, it is necessary that someone comes out
with the more powerful and useful "Google" to promote code re-usability in

To take the initiative, I had already programmed an index builder to
construct a comprehensive index, which contains details on every keyword in
the Squeak image, its frequency of occurrence, and its position in the
context. I do believe by indexing these keywords in advance, will enable a
powerful yet efficient search engine to be implemented in Squeak, rather
than the current brute-forced, search on demand techniques used.

I am a final year undergraduate student from Multimedia University, Malaysia
and I am willing to spend my time to work on the search engine. I hope my
ideas are useful to the smalltalk community, and am I eligible to
participate in this time GSoC?

Thank you.
