Case Sensitive Super Search

It would be nice to be able to search with case sensitivity. Perl is a case-sensitive language.

    That is a pretty unconvincing argument. I think you'll have better luck getting a new feature added if you take more that 10 seconds composing your request. You could at least have mentioned that you were frustrated trying to super search on "DEFINED". Though, I just would have told you to super search on "sub defined;tie" with a separator of ";".

      Thanks for adding to my knowledge regarding DEFINED.

      I wasn't making a request or argument. I was providing a data point: Here is one who would have found case insensitivity useful.

      I appreciate the site. I am willing to give feedback since it is invited. But I don't presume to know enough1 about web serving or search engines to make an argument for having such a feature added.

      Thanks, let me know if/when I may call you Tye.


      1  "Not knowing enough" sounds better than the equally true "not knowing anything". Vanity.
