will cause it to be 'deleted from the document before determining what
a word is'. So I think you would not want to use that. Also, check that
your minimum_word_length in the configuration file is not set to some
value >3 which would also exclude c++ from being indexed.

Note that you will need to re-dig after changing either of the above to
rebuild your index.
