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

Hmm. I tried searching for 9-bit and "9-bit" and it looks like StackOverflow just sees "bit" and ignores the "9-".

Is there a way to search verbatim for nonalphabetic characters?

Not sure when this was fixed, but it has been fixed.
