Submission + - Punctuation aware search engine? (google.com) 3

gumpish writes: As we all know, Google's search engine discards punctuation, making it difficult to get a meaningful signal-to-noise ratio in search results. (For example, try searching for information about Python's all() method.) Unfortunately it seems most major search engines behave the same way. This would seem to imply the existence of a niche just waiting to be filled: a punctuation aware search engine. For certain searches where punctuation really matters (as is often the case when looking for code) I would gladly put up with intrusive ads, mandatory registration, slow processing of my query and a small set of results, because something is better than nothing. Is there a search engine every slashdotter should know about that meets this need?
