    SYNOPSIS

           surfraw elviname [options] search words ...
           sr elviname [options] search words ...
           sr elviname -help
           sr -elvi
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This is the man page for the elvi, a set of search tools that form part
           of surfraw(1).
    
           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, 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.
    
           To search using this elvis, do:
    
            sr elvisname [options] search terms.
    
           For  example,  to  search google for information on Debian ports, using
           the "I'm feeling lucky" option:
    
            sr google -l debian ports
    
           To find out about options specific to this elvis, do:
    
            sr elvisname -local-help
    
           To find out about surfraw, see the man page for surfraw(1).  To see the
           full list of elvi, do:
    
            sr -elvi
    
       Adding the elvi to your path
           If  you  are  a  regular user of surfraw, you will probably get sick of
           typing sr or surfraw each time. You can regain  the  old  behaviour  of
           running   the   elvi   directly   by   adding  the  elvi  directory  (-
           /usr/lib/surfraw)   to   your   path,   either   manually   or    using
           surfraw-update-path(1).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           Use  sr elviname -local-help for elvi-specific options.
    
           The following options work with all elvi.
    
    
           -elvi  Display  a list of other Surfraw mechanisms for conquering evil.
    
           -escape-url-args=yes|no
                  Apply url escaping to arguments (default: yes)
    
           -q|-quote
                  Bracket arguments with "  characters  (default:  no)  Note  that
                  putting  quotes  round  arguments  works now, so you can do, for
                  example:
    
                   sr google foo "bar baz" bam
    
                  and the quoting is passed on to the search engine
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

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