Hello All,

i tried to list out the questions that falls under C language. When i tried the search with "C", stackoverflow search option page is displayed. i tried "cprogramming","clanguage", "c programming","c language" but it doesn't give the expected result.

Expected Result : Displaying ONLY the questions that has C tags.

Quit funny :)

EDIT: But Certainly i know the workaround to get the list of C tagged question

You can use square brackets to specify the C tag: [C]

As in the URL:[c]

Why the square brackets? They aren't necessary, though they seem to do no harm. – Jonathan Leffler Nov 25 '09 at 12:48
@Jonathan Leffler: In a normal search the brackets signal a tag ( but I guess for /questions/tagged/ search they're not required – Andomar Nov 25 '09 at 14:22
Search terms that match the N most active tags are automatically converted to tag searches, so I don't know if this makes a difference...(I also don't recall how big N is. It was in the blog.) – dmckee Nov 26 '09 at 3:45
