Very cool programmer's search engine

Postby Jackolantern » Sun Aug 28, 2016 9:44 pm

I came across this in a Stack Overflow comment and thought it was definitely cool enough to share. Has anyone ever seen the programmer's search engine Symbol Hound? The key difference between it and Google is that Symbol Hound doesn't remove punctuation from searches. For example, compare a search for "Javascript ===" on Search Hound and Google. You will see that SH actually pulls up results about the JS identical operator (the === operator). Google will basically show results as if you searched just "Javascript". So if you need to search what the => operator does in a language, or ?? in C#, now you can without having to figure out how to put the symbol into words! It also lets you search for direct lines of code and regular expressions. 8-)

Very cool indeed. I once tried to know those === meaning and I just ended up asking google "javascript triple equal operator" or something :P
