This is a simple command line program which lets you search the internet from.the terminal. It's not exactly the most original idea out there. I personally have used various programs which pretty much do the same thing, (most of these even offer better user interface): custom web search feature in Firefox, similar feature in Quicksilver and Launchy, a fairly sophisticated command line program called googlecl, and an emacs lisp library called webjump. But this raises quiet a few problems, namely: =over =item * The inability to share my own custom sites defined in one program with another. =item * Some programs are tied to a specific platform, e.g. Quicksilver on OSX, Launchy on Windows, and webjump on emacs :p. See also: problem #1. =back This program offers a simple solution to said problems. It uses a plain text file configuration which you can use to add your own custom sites (and aliases, but more on that later). You can also use it to interface with other programs, see the section the INTEGRATION WITH EMACS entry elsewhere in this document for an example. By default you're only able to search with google. You can search with more sites by putting the following in the file ~/.lookuprc (see the CONFIGURATION FILE entry elsewhere in this document). [sites] bing = Assuming that's the only thing you put in the config file (to make sure that the abbreviations don't clash), you'll be able to search with bing with either one of the following commands: lookup bing foobar lookup bin foobar lookup bi foobar lookup b foobar
