Search for code matching string

At the moment it seems the search bar in github only searches for words?

But that’s not very useful on a code repository where one wants to search for exact matches - for example :

“.someprop”  (including the period)

“somemethod(” (including the parenthesis or other symbols)

“var SomeType”  (including space)

Of course I can check out and grep, but it’s sometimes useful not to have to do that
