As I had pointer out in my previous entry, I had not been able to search google from within my emacs environment. Hence the "need" to write a command line script which I would be able to call from within emacs
The code is not the best I have written and any decent Python programmer would be able to make more improvements to it. If you do something clever with the code, it would be very kind of you to let me know about it too (raj at rajshekhar.net).
You need to have Pygoogle module installed. In its unaltered form, the script will require Python2.3 to run. However, if you remove the
#--ugly hack part (see the comments in the code), it will run with Python2.2 too.
Code now available at mouse click from here.
