Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Two search engines for code (mainstream searches all strip out the special symbols):
http://symbolhound.com
http://stackse.com/
The latter only searches StackOverflow atm but even that's useful.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^ do you have some usage examples?

when i search for error messages, i learned to strip out special characters (mostly colons ':') because they might get misinterpreted.
once or twice i wanted to search for an environment variable that starts with a $, but that would also need to be case sensitive then.

beyond that... search for code snippets?

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

An example: search for

bash . ..

in google, you get nothing. with the SymbolHound search, it returns hits on the use of the "." and ".." in cli shells.

(When I was first trying to learn the C# language around 10 years ago, google would ignore the "#" when used in the search field, but I see that's fixed now.)

Yes, I landed on those sites because I was trying (failing) to use a POSIX character class [[:word:]] in a bash regex comparison. Regular search engines come back with things like Microsoft Word. StackOverflow's built-in search is no better. neutral

Two days ago stackse.com gave me something like "some people find bash does not support [[:word:]]", but now the site seems to be broken... roll

( Anyway [[:alnum]_] works OK. )

Spotted aurora borealis earlier tonight -- only the second time for me this far south -- and checked this forecast just aminute ago: https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/s … 071,59.230
Looks like I wasn't dreaming.
