I am looking for a Microsoft C++ language extension, the __try keyword for exception handling.

On StackOverflow, the results show anything that matches try. This is not what I want.

I'd like to know if there is a workaround to not get false positives for try when I am looking for __try.

__except also fails to get the expected results.

Maybe you should __try harder? – JaredPar Aug 11 '09 at 21:15
That's funny. I really don't want to be using the SEH stuff, but this is out of my hands. – tim Aug 11 '09 at 21:20

This works now, but you must put the term in quotes.

Thanks. that was not obvious - I suppose I would have tried that if there was whitespace in the string, but underscores muse be treated specially for SO. – tim Sep 16 '09 at 17:17
