Sometimes I have some doubts about a specific function. For example: Sequence function.

But when I do a search it appears in the titles, in the body of text, ...

My intention is to search the term within the code only. In my example a person can comment on "sequence" and not necessarily use the function in context.

What should I do to make my research more effective?


You can use the search operator code: to restrict a search to code fields, e.g.:


This search isn't perfect and it is not always clear (to me at least) what constitutes a complete token that can be searched for and what does not. Nevertheless it should be significantly more useful than simply searching for a bare string that is a common English word.

For more on search operators and other search options see:

(Strangely code: is not mentioned on this page that I can see; I don't know why.)
