hello

I found that google search often does not help to find the program I need

at the same time, a look up in websites like sf.net and codeproject.com may reveal a software diamond

so are there any other software/code/script/macro repositories?

thanks!

Now and then I hit a gem on this site:
http://www.techsupportalert.com/

Often the reviews are for utilities with names you know. But the user comments sometimes mention a nice program flying under the radar.

Sometimes this site is handy:
http://alternativeto.net/

Also I do like Softpedia:
http://win.softpedia.com/

I often search Softpedia. If I find an app that looks interesting then I try to find the home page.  Softpedia can be several versions behind. Once I know the exact app name I can usually dig out the latest version.

A good place for open source software is Sourceforge.

A bit difficult to search, but github also has several gems

@DerekHal: sf.net (as mentioned by the OP) is a working redirect for Sourceforge Wink

You can try this:

http://www.koders.com/

It's a code search engine.

A lot of component vendors offer source code, but you won't find that in repositories.

There's also Codeplex - http://www.codeplex.com/ - Lots of stuff there.

Here's a couple of useful forums:

http://www.autohotkey.com...664ed56a61f80a89406c65b50

http://www.autoitscript.c.../forum/9-example-scripts/

Although it's scripting, many of the user libraries and contributed functions use WinAPI calls.  In fact AutoIt has a couple of UDF libraries of WinAPI functions with AutoIt wrappers.

Same with AHK. Many of the small useful functions use DllCall to call a WinAPI. There's so many API calls it's easy to overlook items.
