How to search an explicit hyphen or any other special character in issues/PRs

I’d like to search for PRs that include in their title an explicit ->. How do I do that? It seems that it’s always parsed as an exlusion as explained here.

Hey @doronbehar, Thanks for being here! Your observation is correct. The search ignores these special characters. Since the code is tokenised before it’s indexed, there is currently no way to work around this. Exact search is something we’d love to provide in the future. I can’t make any promises, but I’ll definitely add your +1 for this feature to our internal feature request list.

But I want to search for an explicit -> in a PR title , not in a PR’s code.
