Is anyone using a source code repository like Github, SVC, etc. to retain versions of their Easy Language code ?
Also, AFAIK there is no way to search thru all of the source code for select keywords, etc ?

Github & gitlab are great and completely free. You can keep all your code private and still enjoy all the benefits of version control & secure code hosting.

To search for keywords, the best approach depends on the text editor / IDE you use to edit your code. Personally I enjoy the GNU / Linux ecosystem, for me silversearcher https://github.com/ggreer/the_silver_searcher is one of the best options. A lot of people also use ctags, or plain old grep. They're all accessible through the terminal or an editor like vim.

I don't develop under Windows, but I'm sure that the Windows IDEs offer a ton of search options as well.

If you're looking for a simpler approach, you can just create a private repository on github / gitlab and use their built in code search. It's works great, but usually you want to update / modify the code you just searched for so a built in search on your pc is usually better.

However, when I export the source code into .sef or .pla format, the results are encoded making a windows search impossible.
I need the ability in Multicharts to export the functions, indicators, etc. to a text file. Right now, that only be done 1 function/indicator at a time via cut-and-paste. This is not practical with thousands of functions, etc.
