I need a personal code library

P: n/a
I wonder if I might get some of you to describe methods or tools that you've
found effective to store and manage code snippets and routines. I don't
have a particular need to share code with other developers, but I'm finding
that my personal code in a bunch of little files is becoming unmanageable.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

one simple option -
put all your code into a "library" database.
Create a table in the same DB.
ModuleName, Sub/FunctionName, Purpose, ... etc.

then you can search it...
or you could include the database name and then not have them all in
one place.

That contains a good deal of already-done code, but it can take some effort
to find what code to use, and even though well commented, make sure you are
using it correctly.

And, depending on what you really want out of it, Total Access CodeTools is
useful, as well. And, you can use both, for that matter.

If you just want a library application for your own code, there's a free one
at MVP Arvin Meyer's website, http://www.datastrat.com.

Larry, I looked at that URL but couldn't find a library application. Did I
miss it, or might it no longer be available?

CodeWriter2 was what I had in mind, but I thought it had more library
functions than it apparently does. It is more along the lines of the code
block / procedure skeleton features of FMS's CodeTools. Sorry I
misremembered.
