Abstract. Software engineering and reuse-oriented tools have been studied along the last years, aiming to provide help in the software development. With the importance of reuse grow- ing significantly, effective software reuse tools and environ- ments started to be needed. This paper presents and dis- cusses some works that comprise many issues related to source code search tools, covered by university and indus- try since 90’s until today. In the end of the paper, a set of requirements is presented, integrating the features that can be found in most works of the area, serving as a basis for future work toward an effective source code search tool.
