For most of us, google is one source of information. Whether its technical or non technical, for work or fun, almost whatever.

However, I recently come to a major limitation of basic search. It is not easy, perhaps, impossible as of now, to search some special symbols (like ?, ;, ‘, “, # etc.) in Google search results. It might be possible that the crawler is not that sufficient, or it might not be made that sufficient to capture such symbols.

Of course, alternatively, Google provides this for its special feature called Google Code Search. Of course, it is made for technical, typically in terms of computers and languages (programming, coding etc.!) search.

For example, when you search like “select * from” where “? = ?” , it gives really useful search results in Code search, but not in google Search!
