duckduckgo - Man Page

Command line tool to use the DuckDuckGo API


version 0.008


  duckduckgo facebook
  duckduckgo --batch facebook
  duckduckgo duck duck go


This application queries the DuckDuckGo API <http://www.duckduckgo.com/api.html> and displays the result in a nice human-readable way or in a batch mode which could be used by a shellscript to automatically work with the DuckDuckGo API results.

The --batch parameter tells the application to display the data in a more machine readable form.

The --forcesecure parameter tells the application to not fall back to http if the https request failed.

The startup of the application takes some milliseconds longer cause of the compile overhead by Moose. If you want to use a huge bunch of queries, you should consider Learning Perl <http://learn.perl.org/>, best directly the modern way with the free Modern Perl Book <http://www.onyxneon.com/books/modern_perl/index.html> available as PDF <http://www.onyxneon.com/books/modern_perl/modern_perl_letter.pdf>. Then you can use the distribution WWW::DuckDuckGo directly todo faster a bigger amount of queries
