Developers at The Conference Exchange often need to find if a module or method or setting are used in over 30 client codebases. Traditional text searching tools are inefficient or difficult to use effectively. A tool that allows developers to quickly find what they are looking for was developed using Plucene and PPI. This tool is implemented using Plucene, a Perl port of the Java indexing tool Lucene and Parse::Perl::Isolated (PPI) a Perl module for parsing Perl code without involving perl's lexer.

Falcone's talk begins by demonstrating how easy it is to use Plucene::Simple to quickly implement a working sample. It will then cover the power available by moving from Plucene::Simple to Plucene, which provides finer grained control over the indexing and searching capacities of the tool. The latest revision of the tool uses PPI to allow more advanced and specialised data collection than was available in the original Plucene::Simple implementation which pulled data from ctags.
