I've seen the new "$_SERVER" (for example) variable arrays mentioned, as replacements for the old $HTTP_SERVER_VARS (I think) array, but I wasn't able to easily find any pages that mention them.  I therefore put $_SERVER (no quotes) in the search box, and got pages with the word "server", not "$_SERVER" so I tried entering "$_SERVER" (a quoted string), which produced the same results.

1.  It appears there is no way to find pages with the exact text $_SERVER using this search system.
2.  Discussion of $_SERVER (and $POST, $_ENV, etc.) arrays needs to be findable in the documentation.

yes, we are aware of this, and documentation people are working on documentation for _* global variables.

I appreciate you're working on the _* documentation, but the problem remains there is no way to search for "$_SERVER" and get results that contain the exact string

Reclassified, reopened.

This appears to be a website problem, not a documentation problem.  Searching for '$_SERVER' results in matches for 'server', over 2000 of them.  If this was a documentation problem, zero results would exist.

This is a website problem/feature request.

Please use "_SERVER" as your search term. $ may be special
for htdig.

Dupe of #14378

The _ in "_SERVER" get's ignored.  _SERVER_ is the same, 553 of unrelated results (I swear it was 2000 before :).  HTTP_SERVER_VARS works fine.  Someone here knows htdig, maybe can adjust?

I assume $_SERVER is somewhere in the online manual user comments.  The info in the manual CVS now but the manual has some build difficulties currently.  Regardless, _SERVER != SERVER.  Maybe making such an adjustment will cause other problems?

This is a duplicate, in that imho it's a feature request to add custom "go" words to the search mechanism.  Ideally, we can create a list of words and where they should point to in manual upon the search.  Working with a list of popular searches will be helpful too.

The other bug was marked as 'Wont fix' so..
