Really, sometimes both Google and Bing ticks me off since they refuse to search for the term I enter, even when it is inside quotes. Bing states: " "" [quotes] Finds the exact words in a phrase". No, not really. Maybe someone can help me out with some Search Engine 101 advice...
I'm in the process of making a parser that can parse through a MAKE build log (using MAKE's dry-run option). Some output from MAKE looks like this:
# ? := C:/some_path/somefile.cpp ... //and a whole lot of seemingly somefile.cpp dependencies...
OK, I'm trying to find out what the significance of "# ? :=" is. So I enter:
"# ? :=" make build
Both Bing and Google refuse to return anything useful. Bing states it found 119,000,000 results. As far as I can tell (looking at the most "relevant" results), not a single one has the term I put into quotes, so that should be zero results.
This is not the only search term I've had problems with. I've had much simpler search terms where the search engines refuse to search for the quoted term.
