The Google search engine explains that

When you put a word or phrase in quotes, the results will only include pages with the same words in the same order as what's inside the quotes. Note: Only use this if you're looking for an exact word or phrase, otherwise you'll exclude many helpful results by mistake. Example: "imagine all the people"

I want to find exact phrase containing "-include" meaning a usage of g++ compiler. It's strange, but all search engines ignore my minus sign despite I put the phrase in double quotes in my query "g++" "-include" option

Why? How to find what I actually want?

I don't know of a way to do this with Google, and I did some more research and there doesn't seem to be a way.

I did however find this answer that links to a search site called SymbolHound which will take your input literally, as-is.
