Bhardwaj, Anant P., Luciano, Dave and Klemmer, Scott R. (2011): Redprint: integrating API specific "instant example" and "instant documentation" display interface in IDEs. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 21-22.

Software libraries for most of the modern programming languages are numerous, large and complex. Remembering the syntax and usage of APIs is a difficult task for not just novices but also expert programmers. IDEs (Integrated Development Environment) provide capabilities like autocomplete and intellisense to assist programmers; however, programmers still need to visit search engines like Google to find API (Application Program Interface) documentation and samples. This paper evaluates Redprint -- a browser based development environment for PHP that integrates API specific "Instant Example" and "Instant Documentation" display interfaces. A comparative laboratory study shows that integrating API specific "Instant Example" and "Instant Documentation" display interfaces into a development environment significantly reduces the cost of searching and thus significantly reduces the time to develop software.
