Make Search From Command Line With Google CL

Search giant Google has launched a new tool that allows programmers to perform Google searches directly from a window, instead of accessing the browser.

GoogleCL is available to download and can also be used to access Google's Blogger, Contacts, Calender, Docs, Picasa and YouTube services, right from the command prompt.

The tool, which has been released for Linux, Windows and Mac, will allow users to upload video on YouTube, edit documents on Google Docs and upload image folders to Picasa, directly from the terminal.

After downloading the gdata Python client library and GoogleCL, users need to unzip the files to a specific location. They then need to run a series of commands in the terminal window to download the client on to their systems.
