digitalmars.D - [OT] Google search restricted to a directory?

Anyone know if there's a way to do a google search restricted to not just a 
domain (as with "site:whateversiteblahblah.com"), but also to a particular 
directory? I've searched around but didn't see anything.

Actually, come to think it of it, it doesn't strictly need to be google, 
just as long as it isn't total garbage.

site:example.com inurl:"your/path" That good enough? -- Simen

You can even use the shorter »site:digitalmars.com/d/2.0« form – if you know the exact directory (and not just what's part of the url), you don't have to use inurl.

Weird, I could have sworn I tried that before and it didn't work. Maybe I didn't. Works for me now though :)
