I'm trying to do a search in the SO search engine for C code questions that contain the
%*s specificer. The search I'm using is: [c] "%*s", I've also tried it with `s
The problem is that the search engine isn't pulling up any results containing this specificer (and I know there's at least this one), I think it's using the
* as a wildcard instead.
I saw some answers on MSO to similar questions suggesting to use symbolhound but it seems I can't apply the "C" tag there, so I'm stuck searching every
%*s in every language (apparently it comes up in MATLAB a lot).
So is there a way to either "escape" the
* in the SO search or apply the
[c] tag using symbolhound... or some other mechanism I'm missing?
