In StackOverflow the search tips suggest using '+' to ensure terms appear in the search results. However if I enter the search:
+vs2008 +mfc +automation
It returns nothing at all, for some reason it doesn't seem to work if there is no space between the
+ and the search term, despite the fact that this is what the search page's instructions say
On the other hand if I enter
+ vs2008 + mfc + automation
It returns results that do not include all the terms. Which makes it pretty well impossible to usefully search as I either get no results at all, or thousands of results that I don't have time to wade through.
How do you do a simple AND based search on StackOverflow?
