      Surfraw - Shell Users' Revolutionary Front Rage Against the Web
                     http://surfraw.sourceforge.net/

                                 Oh Baybe
                                I need some
                               Deep Linking
                                 Let us go
                            Surfin' in the raw!

  Surfraw provides a fast unix command line interface to a variety of
  popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power. It reclaims
  google, altavista, babelfish, dejanews, freshmeat, research index,
  slashdot and many others from the false-prophet, pox-infested heathen
  lands of html-forms, placing these wonders where they belong, deep in
  unix heartland, as god loving extensions to the shell.

  Surfraw abstracts the browser away from input. Doing so lets it get on
  with what it's good at. Browsing. Interpretation of linguistic forms
  is handed back to the shell, which is what it, and human beings are
  good at. Combined with netscape-remote or incremental text browsers,
  such as links (http://artax.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~mikulas/links/), w3m
  (http://www.w3m.org/), and screen(1) a Surfraw liberateur is capable
  of navigating speeds that leave GUI tainted idolaters agape with fear
  and wonder.

  For example:

         $ ask why is jeeves gay?
         $ google -results=100 RMS, GNU, which is sinner, which is sin?
         $ austlii -method=phrase dog like
         $ rhyme -method=perfect Julian

  Global options are common to all Surfraw elvi (clients). You can
  get a list of the currently installed elvi by just typing `surfraw'.
