Google inadvertently invents an acronym generator

Hats off to Google Labs for creating the first search engine to allow regular expressions, even if it's just for their new code search engine.

This is something I've been waiting for for ages. Why? acronym discovery!

This regex "\s+I\w+\s+P\w+\s+O\w+\s+D\w+" means find sequences of words that match I*, P* O* D*. We get from this:
  • indexes pairs of digits
  • invalid path or domain
  • important property of DOM
  • \sL\w+\s+O\w+\s+V\w+\s+E\w+ searches for love and gets "lock on VLDB entry"

    \sI\w+\s+B\w+\s+M\w+ finds i.b.m. and gets :
  • is being moved
  • image being manipulated

    s.h.i.t.
  • signal handler is trashed
  • systems hide it there

    r.s.s.
  • random string sent
  • related structures stored
  • report some statistics

    love it -- i would say the word based indexing google uses for its general searches would make regex impossible though.

    Nobody is a stranger to the word viagra. Even the children have heard of it, though they may be unaware of its meaning. Keeping in pace of its increasing demand which resulted from its phenomenal success in treating ED, even the online pharmacies started dealing in Viagra. One can now easily buy viagra or order viagra online. Ever since the day of introduction of viagra online, it has been like a blessing to both the online pharmacies and the customers. The online pharmacies are reaping huge profits and the people are getting the worlds most sought after drug at their doorsteps that too at a cost relaxation.

    Generic Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.
