Is it possible to search Stack Overflow for a string containing < and > characters?

I'm trying to find questions relating to Where<T> but get told there are no results for WhereT. This makes it difficult to find information on questions relating to C# generics.

SO Search sucks. Everyone knows that! –  LeakyCode Apr 24 '09 at 14:50
    
use double quotes: ["Where<T>"] unfortunately this is the only question it finds. –  Sam Hasler Apr 24 '09 at 14:52

Add the ` character or double quotes to your search terms, e.g.,

`Where<T>` or "Where<T>"

Stick to using google searches with the site:stackoverflow.com modifier

Never seen that before. Is there a way I can add that to my list of search engine's in the firefox search bar? Otherwise it is likely faster for me to just type it in as I normally do. –  TheTXI Apr 24 '09 at 14:54
    
I'm not sure: you used to be able to add search providers by URL but I don't see how to do that anymore. –  Joel Coehoorn Apr 24 '09 at 15:02
    
Personally, I just keep the link handy on my user profile page. –  Joel Coehoorn Apr 24 '09 at 15:04
    
It's a good idea, I am just so hard-wired to the search box now that anything else seems like going out of my way :) –  TheTXI Apr 24 '09 at 15:07
