... er, I meant search and open (*).
Seen on Mike Driscoll's blog via Twitter:
(*) As in, search the web for a phrase and open the result(s) - which is what Mike's post shows how to do, using a few Python libraries - urllibr/urllib2, requests, mechanize and webbrowser. I particularly like the use of webbrowser to automate the opening of the results. The webbrowser module has some options to customize its behavior - see the Python docs for it.
Speaking of webbrowser, spynner looks interesting too.
And the "stand and deliver" bit refers to stories about highwaymen in England of past centuries: http://www.stand-and-deliver.org.uk/ - from memories of historical novels I read as a kid :)
