NAME

opensearch-genquery - Output the URL of a query generated from an OpenSearch Description

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

opensearch-genquery [-q] [-H] [-A] [-R] [-c COUNT] [-i INDEX] [-p PAGENUM] [-l LANG] [-O ENC] [-I ENC] URL SEARCH TERMS...

DESCRIPTION

Output the URL of a query generated from an OpenSearch Description file at URL, with the specified SEARCH TERMS and other options filled in.

If multiple search types are available, -H, -A and -R can be used to specify which type is wanted. For example, -A -R can be used to request an Atom response, or failing that fall back to RSS. By default the first URL found in the description file is used.

Not all web sites implement all (or any) of the optional OpenSearch parameters. When used with those sites, the corresponding options will be silently ignored.

OPTIONS

-q Give no output on errors. In this case, consult the exit code to determine errors (See DIAGNOSTICS).
-H Request HTML response.
-A Request Atom response.
-R Request RSS response.

-H, -A, and -R can be combined to express response type priority and specify fallback types.

-c COUNT, --count=COUNT Request COUNT results.

OpenSearch parameter: count.

-i INDEX, --startindex=INDEX Request results start at offset NUM.

OpenSearch parameter: startIndex.

-p PAGENUM, --startpage=PAGENUM Request results page PAGENUM.

OpenSearch parameter: pageIndex.

-l LANG, --language=LANG Request results in LANG. LANG should be a 2-letter ISO country code (e.g. en or de).

OpenSearch parameter: language.

-O ENC, --outputencoding=ENC Request results encoded in ENC (default: UTF-8).

OpenSearch parameter: outputEncoding.

-I ENC, --inputencoding=ENC Specify search terms are encoded in ENC (default: UTF-8).

OpenSearch parameter: inputEncoding.

-h, --help Show a short help message.
-- End of options.

DIAGNOSTICS

The exit code can be consulted to determine errors, as follows:
0 - Success.
1 - Error fetching OpenSearch Description URL.
2 - Error parsing OpenSearch Description.
3 - No matching search type found.
4 - Cannot find perl module WWW::OpenSearch.
5 - Unhandled error from WWW::OpenSearch.
