> You seem to think vim -c "/pattern" performs a '/' search. It doesn't. What it is doing is specifying the first line of an ex command range via a pattern. I'm not sure where it's documented but specifying a single-line range with no command will just set the cursor to that line.
It has ho helptag of its own, but it is documented as :[range], just
after ":help gg", in the section about up and down motions.
":help +cmd" and ":help [range]" (the section which includes the
":range" overview you mention below) are also relevant because more
detailed, but the section about +something as a Vim argument is ":help -+c".
> :help :range gives details. I wonder if you could make use of a ";" in your range to accomplish what you want with a shorter command.
gvim +713;/haddock/ -c "call search('haddock','c')" fish.cpp
for the first "haddock" after line 713 (i.e. on line 714 or after).
This will also find chaddocks if present. See
about specifying word boundaries in a pattern.
