Command Line Google

Posted on Tue 03 June 2008 by alex in geek

I have learnt to love the command line. GUI's may make things easy to find but they suck at expressing complex things efficiently (e.g. "show me every file that I've changed in the last hour and it less the 100kb"). So this cool CLI interface to Google caught my eye. I was particularly impressed with the way it handles things I take for granted like auto-expansion and completion all in the web page. I wonder if it can be built for a real command line like bash?

UPDATE: Excellent, Slashdot comments pointed me to surfraw which is now installed on my work box.
