Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When searching for a post, it is possible to filter the posts by a string that must be present in a block code, such as with code:"preg_match".

This search option is not documented, though. Does it mean it is an option that could be removed in any moment, or that it is an option that is subject to changes?

Shhhh! It has been a while though, so I'm not sure if it's still "in-testing" or not. – Tim Stone Sep 12 '12 at 19:08
Should I have titled the question "Shhhh! Why is the 'code:' […]"? ;) – kiamlaluno Sep 12 '12 at 19:11
@kiamlaluno That would attract less attention than "Eeeeeek! Why is the 'code:'..." – Bill the Lizard Sep 12 '12 at 19:16
It's not a secret, but it's not polished either...I was interrupted in the middle of implementing it and haven't re-visited it in a while. You're welcome to use it and we won't remove it. That being said, I don't feel it's 1.0 quality at this point, so haven't added it to documentation as I expect there are bugs I'll find with more testing locally. We're doing a lot behind the scenes right now, when that settles down I'll re-visit search (we have lots of ideas/code in the pipe there). – Nick Craver Sep 13 '12 at 0:07
