The need to query and understand source code is an important practical problem for software engineers in large development projects. A recent paper by S. Paul and A. Prakash in this journal proposes a workable solution to this problem. However, there are several previously reported systems that can also address this problem. The relationship to the body of existing work is the subject of this short paper.
