If I type '<%# vs <%"' into any of the major search engines, everything is stripped out except the 'vs'. I understand why they do this. I would just like to know if anyone knows of a way to escape illegal characters so that they are searched properly.

I know this is not strictly a programming question, but it is relevant.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It is all very well voting to close this, but when I searched SO for <%# it stripped out those characters as well, so how was I supposed to find the existing question? –  Daniel Dyson May 19 '10 at 8:40

Depending on what you need, Google Code Search might help you.

Thanks. That was exactly what I needed. –  Daniel Dyson May 19 '10 at 8:40

Since Google Code Search is discontinued, how about Search Code?
