(On Windows) using the .CHM file provided by Hernan Foffani;
can copy from another application
and paste into the search or index window; with your example, index also shows 
7 other functions/macros matching ^_?PyObject_GC -- very handy.

Is it a FAQ why this kit is not in the Pythonlabs Win32 distribution 
instead of the "bunch of HTML files" kit? I understand that 
it's in the Activestate dist'n.
