in reply to WWW::Google

IIRC google can return search results in XML. It could be slighly easier and more errorprone to parse it than parse HTML which can be changed in any day.

    Definitely, it would be preferable to do that. I put a little research into the topic and couldn't find anything - Mostly only searched their "Services" page though.

    That would be much better, I could solve some parsing problems...*checks*

      This PDF file mentions that you can use HTTP requests like
      GET http://google.com/xml?q=YOUR_QUERY_HERE
      to get search results in XML.

      But I've just checked it again and it seems it doesn't work anymore :(
