Programming codeAlternatively referred to as a code snippet, a snippet is a small portion of text that is part of a larger set of programming code used for applications and web pages. Snippets are designed to be re-useable and add functionality, such as linking different areas of a program together.

Snippets are available in virtually all programming languages, including PHP, CGI, Java, JavaScript, Visual Basic, C++, and more. Many snippets are free to use, but can include personal use restrictions. Other snippets may require a one-time or recurring license fee to use.
