Description andreasschneider 2012-08-29 06:44:19 UTC
SEARCH should be able to ignore comments and only show code in result list
Comment 1 OlegKN 2013-06-11 23:06:36 UTC
This feature will be very useful.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Havlin 2013-06-12 06:02:19 UTC
Content of files is currently not parsed during search, so implementing this will not be easy.
If you want to search only in executable code, try "Find Usages", which may be more appropriate for your usecase.
