Interesting. Thanks for the the suggestion.

Sadly it fails on the first test. Badly.

Not only can't it search on the fixed string POSIX::SigRT
It doesn't even generate any feedback that it can't, just its title page.

It *does* work if I wrap it in quotes.
But how do I search for quotes? This is meant to be a code search, after all.

And I'm not even going to ask about regular expression based searches....
