How can I search for a string containing a colon?

I'm sorry if this question has already asked; I'm unable to search for it due to the very same bug I am reporting.

: is not allowed for some reason in searches. For example, if you search for std::copy you are redirected to a page that shows you the search option..

I can understand this may be because of advanced searches such as user:1, but can't you make the search work anyway if the string is not an advanced search (such as std::copy)?

This is something a programming site should definitely let you do.
