You're gonna like this (as seen on NTKnow): "Surfraw (Shell Users' Revolutionary Front Rage Against the Web) 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." Beautiful... raw and uncut, just how you like it, you CLI machine. :) And it's a commandline imperative (like, yet breathtakingly unlike, Mr. Mellencamp's Dance Naked), to boot!
