This really leads me to believe that the market is ripe for a "technical" search engine, which can do sophisticated queries of semi-structured data.

I could see such an engine having both a human readable output and a json output, suitable for chaining into some other analysis pipeline.




Not sure exactly what you're describing, but my project, for an extremely small number of programming languages (4 or 5): hand compiled datasets, such as clojure atlas,

http://www.clojureatlas.com/

and mine:

I'm more thinking like a search engine against the web, but designed around being able to query in sophisticated ways: e.g., regexs, views against the outputs, being able to collect data into forms that a programming language can reason & requery against. WebQL is a commercial product that is like what I'm describing.

While it can't do all of that, you Blekko let's you use slash tags like /programming or /ruby to limit your results to specific, relevant sites. Definitely my go-to for tech queries.
