Searching approaches

Hayoo

My newly installed system would not allow me to hoogle what I wanted (no xmonad or xmonadcontrib in hoogle) so someone suggested Hayoo.

(define-key haskell-mode-map (kbd "<f3>")

 (lambda ()
  (interactive)
  (browse-url (format "http://holumbus.fh-wedel.de/hayoo/hayoo.html?query=%s&start"
                      (region-or-word-at-point)))))

region-or-word-at-point is available in the thing-at-pt+.el library.

Added 22-12-2008 - Promt for hayoo word

(defun rgr/hayoo()

 (interactive)
 (let* ((default (region-or-word-at-point))

(term (read-string (format "Hayoo for the following phrase (%s): "

                                   default))))
   (let ((term (if (zerop (length term)) default term)))
     (browse-url (format "http://holumbus.fh-wedel.de/hayoo/hayoo.html?query=%s&start" term)))))


(define-key haskell-mode-map (kbd "<f3>") 'rgr/hayoo)

Alternatively use the excellent browse-apropos-url stuff:

Note: Using and URL like this should work too and will give better results (not yet tested as I'm not an emacs user):

http://holumbus.fh-wedel.de/hayoo/hayoo.html?query=%s
