Sethi Search Utility

Sethi Search Utility is a simple command line utility to submit a search to Google, Yahoo!, or MSN and show the (text) results on standard output. Support for several search engines is included. It's currently in serious need of a re-write, especially to avoid scraping and become a good engine using the search APIs provided.

Release Notes: Google's config file has been updated. This little hack is about five years old, and in serious need of a rewrite, especially to avoid scraping and become a good engine using the search APIs provided.

Release Notes: An update to Google's HitStart in the config file/portion (searching Google was broken in old version because Google updated their return value process).

Release Notes: This is the compact version which includes an abbreviated engine.config file for Google, Yahoo!, and MSN directly in the script itself. However, since the engines tend to change their formats frequently, it probably needs quite a bit of maintenance/updating.
