In Google, you can put your query term in quotation marks:

http://www.google.com/search?q="Perl+6"

The closing quote is actually optional.

    Here’s a better tip: use a hyphen, as in [perl-6]. Google interprets hyphens in terms as optional and interchangable with a blank, so this gives you the results of both [perl6] and ["perl 6"]. (But Google already treats whitespace between a word and a number as partially insigificant, so you get largely the same set of results whichever the query you used. The only noticable difference is ranking – things that show up low in the results for both other queries drop even lower in the results for [perl-6].)

    Makeshifts last the longest.
