I would like to search for a word that is preceded by a long hyphen "–" (
U+2013 : EN DASH ) such as
but exclude items that have short/normal/minus hyphen "-": (
U+002D : HYPHEN-MINUS):
Can this be done with a Google search? Obviously, it is awkward because the minus sign is used to exclude terms, and it also seems that Google search doesn't differentiate between the two. If there is a way to do it with Google, that would be awesome, otherwise, any other search engine would work.
For example, I tried searching for
but this just brings up a search for "format" although it returns fewer results (still billions though !).
I also tried
with no luck either.
