Code Friendly Search Engine?

I think this qualifies as a tool. I am looking for a search engine that is code friendly. When I am working on web coding, I would like to be able to search the web for code when I have problems. This would be especially useful when working with CMS or blogging systems such as Drupal, Wordpress, etc.

When I search Google (even with quotes), my code characters such as (), {}, and other such are stripped from the search string. Is there a search engine that will work more simply in such situations? I'm surprised Google hasn't managed this. I could imagine Google making it more tolerant of spaces and such, but at this point I just want to be able to search for code snippets.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
