Thanks for this fabulous search engine that covers all of hackage! But I
have feedback. :)
Yesterday, I was trying to search for the operator (^?!), but no
results. Today, I found that I have to put it in quotes, so the
following queries work: "(^?!)", "^?!". I guess that one of the three
symbols has some special meaning in the query language, but would it be
possible to change the lexical syntax to match Haskell's syntax? I.e.
any valid Haskell identifier is also a valid search query. (I'm happy to
put parentheses around operators.)
The inline Haddock documentation is great, but at the moment, the
hyperlinks don't seem to work. The link
gives an error message
Internal Error: (line 1, column 57): unexpected "S" expecting digit
